Question of the Day June 12, 2013 What is the Purpose of Boards of Pharmacy such as Texas passing legislation to inspect out-of-state compounding pharmacies when they haven't even discipline the in state compounding pharmacies that violate their own rules?
(although Texas did recently advertise for pharmacists to serve on disciplinary cases--although it is not clear these are compounding cases). Is this legislation just politics as usual? Doesn't this re-enforce the need for the FDA to have jurisdiction over "manufacturing compounders" who make the big bucks and can lobby for legislation to protect their interest. Is such legislation even constitutionally valid?
