Legislative Update: Week 6 (February 20)

Several new bills were introduced, including one that would limit dextromethorphan purchases to people over 25, and one that would expand the OTC tests pharmacists can assist with.

Legislative Update: Week 5 (Feb. 13)

Week 5 of Georgia’s 2018 legislative session saw several pharmacy-related bills introduced and others, previously introduced, begin to make their way through the legislative process. GPhA has had an active session already, supporting several bills and also offering feedback on bills that are problematic for pharmacists and/or patients.

Legislative Update: Week 4 (Feb. 9)

Five new bills were introduced, all interesting but none Earth-shattering. Several previous bills have moved out of committee as well, and we're tracking them all.

Legislative Update: Week 3 (Jan. 29)

The first busy week of the year includes introduction of bills creating a Commission on Substance Abuse and Recovery, changing marijuana laws, providing treatment to people convicted of drug offenses, and more.

Update: January 15, 2018
