SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

Inventories of controlled substances required by the Board of Pharmacy; certain limited exceptions. Eliminates the requirement for the Division of Forensic Science to inventory the approximately 1200 drugs maintained in very small quantities as "standards" for making comparisons with the evidence that may be submitted for analyses. In addition, no inventory for the purpose of compliance with Board of Pharmacy requirements will be required of known or suspected controlled substances that have been received as evidentiary materials for analyses by the Division of Forensic Science. This bill tracks federal law to provide limited exceptions to the state inventory requirements, a task requiring many hours of the Division's staff time. The Division's exceptions apply to standards of (i) controlled substances on hand at the time of the inventory in a quantity of less than one kilogram, other than a hallucinogenic controlled substance listed in Schedule I of the Drug Control Act; or (ii) hallucinogenic controlled substances listed in Schedule I of the Drug Control Act, other than lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), on hand at the time of the inventory in a quantity of less than 20 grams; or (iii) LSD on hand at the time of the inventory in a quantity of less than 0.5 grams.
