Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Generally, under current law, no person may engage in the practice of pharmacy
unless the person is licensed as a pharmacist. This bill creates an exception to this
prohibition for a person who is providing services as directed, supervised, and
inspected by a pharmacist, subject to any rules promulgated by the Pharmacy
Examining Board.
The bill also specifically allows such a person acting under a pharmacist, as well
as a pharmacy student who has completed at least two years of pharmacy studies and
a person who has completed pharmacy studies but whose application for licensure
as a pharmacist is pending with the board, to engage in remote dispensing of
prescribed drugs.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
