Medication redistribution bill passes House
LANSING, MI (AP)-- The Michigan Senate has approved two House-passed bills that would allow collection and redistribution of prescription medication.
The bipartisan measures the Senate passed on Wednesday would allow medical facilities to donate unused drugs for distribution to needy patients. The bills also would require that drugs donated to pharmacies participating in the redistribution program have never left medical facilities or oversight to ensure safety.
The legislation also would require participating pharmacies to become disposal sites for excess drugs.
Most other states have enacted similar laws.
The House passed the legislation in June.
