Recently, an "Advisory Notice" was placed on the website of the New York State Board of Pharmacy entitled "Automated Dispensing Machines" that provide "drugs for sale to customers outside of their respective registered pharmacy areas", and that it "considers this to be a violation of state law"1. In support, the Notice cited the Education Law relating to the profession of pharmacy2 and Regulations of the Commissioner of Education3. Finally, ownership of the pharmacy and the Supervising Pharmacist are responsible for compliance and "may be subject to disciplinary and unprofessional conduct action". The Notice did not name specific pharmacies. The Board described a form of "telepharmacy" that is arguably covered by a legislative proposal before the New York State legislature.
