States Do Regulate Pharmaceuticals

Contrary to what Bfrankdc says, our 50 states and 5 territorial possessions do have regulatory authority over drugs insofar as requiring additional labeling, pricing, packaging and what they will or will not allow to be sold within their state.

 

Also, the states can regulate the distribution and sale of pharmaceuticals.

 

The FDA puts forth minimal requirements but the states can add to that.

Mr. Rees,

 

My information came from two sources. One at the FDA, the other at the General Counsel's office at GlaxoSmithKline.

I work in the healthcare industry and have to follow both federal and state regulations on the buying of drugs, their acceptance on our part at different facilities in Delaware, DC, Maryland, Pennylvania and Virginia.

 

You need to do your homework as state regulations can be more burdensome than the federal ones.
