A bill (LD1315) to strengthen the regulation of compounding pharmacies in Maine was introduced to the state’s legislature. The proposed law would require pharmacies compounding medications to obtain a special license, and would require that all pharmacies dispensing compounded drugs to patients in Maine be licensed by the state. The bill also proposes to change the structure of the Maine Board of Pharmacy by removing two pharmacists and replacing them with a physician and a nurse, reports the Kennebec Journal. If the bill becomes law, nonresident pharmacies that fail to comply with Maine regulations for compounding could face fines of up to $25,000.
