Opposition to amendment

Fellow Pharmacists and Citizen Members of the Board,

I am not in favor of the proposed amendment to [18 VAC 110-20-275]. This amendment screams of big business ways to cut costs at the expense of the citizens of this Commonwealth. The citizens that you are appointed to protect.

The citizens that will be most affected are our Seniors. Those that take lots of medications, that have limited resources, that have mental health or dementia conditions and that have no support system to help them navigate this most confusing labeling situation that will be created if you proceed with this change.

I urge you to do what is right for our citizens.  Do not cave to the wishes of big business and pad their pockets with the health and welfare of the people of this Commonwealth.

Thank you for allowing me to comment,

John W Hasty, RPh

Past Executive Director Virginia Department of Health Professions
