DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Pharmacy security. Allows a pharmacist to refuse to honor a prescription if honoring the prescription would endanger the safety of a person employed by the pharmacy.

Allows the board of pharmacy to refuse to renew, suspend, or revoke a pharmacy permit if the permittee fails to implement security measures designated by the board. Makes intimidation a Class D felony instead of a Class A misdemeanor if the person to whom the threat is communicated is an employee of a pharmacy.
