Pharmacies and pharmacists are heavily regulated and subject to a vast body of state and federal laws and regulations. In recent years, there were major additions and changes to these laws, as the Federal government and state governments try to address the prescription drug epidemic. Enforcement actions increased, likely due to the increased monitoring of controlled substances, greater funding for enforcement agencies to combat the epidemic, and pharmacies and pharmacists struggling to keep up with new laws and regulations.
