House Bill 157
151st General Assembly (Present)
Becomes effective upon date of signature of the Governor or upon date specified
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 16 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE UNIFORM CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES ACT.
This Act expands the definition of “prescription drug order” to include orders issued electronically. This Act also eliminates the condition on the issuance by a pharmacist, pharmacist intern or pharmacy student of a hypodermic syringe or needle without a prescription to someone who will self-administer medication or administer medication to a minor child by a parent or legal guardian, but only to persons age 18 or older. This Act repeals an existing paragraph in Title 16, § 4762(c) of the Delaware Code which makes it a Class G felony to deliver, dispose of or give away a hypodermic syringe or needle except as prescribed by Title 16, § 4762 of the Delaware Code. The Act also makes corrections to existing law to make it conform to the standards of the Legislative Drafting Manual.
