CHAPTER 23-25.5
The Return or Exchange of Drugs Act

SECTION 23-25.5-2

§ 23-25.5-2. Legislative purpose.

The general assembly finds that many nursing facilities and assisted living residences destroy quantities of unused but viable prescription medication when residents pass away or when medications otherwise are no longer needed by the resident. In an effort to improve the quality, efficiency and utilization of the state's healthcare system, the general assembly hereby establishes a statewide program allowing pharmacies to accept for return and redispensing certain prescription drugs.
