This email is to notify that an important resolution was adopted
recently by the National Association of Controlled Substances
Authorities.  In sum, the resolution: 

 

"supports the implementation of coordinated legislation and regulation
among the common states to promote the safe, efficient, and effective
destruction of pharmaceuticals through pharmaceutical take-back or other
return programs by the states for public safety purposes; and, that
NASCSA supports the involvement of the federal and state agencies in
working with state pharmaceutical take-back or other return programs to
develop programs with common regulatory attributes; and, that NASCSA
supports the collaboration of state and federal agencies to resolve and
remove the regulatory barriers for states to establish effective
pharmaceutical take-back or other return programs for ultimate
destruction." http://www.nascsa.org/Resolutions/res0703.pdf 

 

Thanks to our Washington State Board of Pharmacy representative and a
King County Local Hazardous Waste representative, this resolution was
crafted and adopted at the 2007 NASCSA conference in Albuquerque, NM.
Presentation materials are also available on the 2007 conference link.
