President signs Ryan Haight Online Pharmacy Consumer Protection Act

Today, President Bush signed the Ryan Haight Online Consumer Protection Act.

LegitScript’s President co-authored an op-ed more than a year and a half ago calling for the Act to be passed. We’re glad to see it finally has become law. (But, as we’ve noted before, it only applies to domestic websites selling controlled substance prescription drugs, and therefore does not, in a practical sense, apply to the vast majority of Internet pharmacy websites.)

LegitScript will blog more about the new law over the next several days.
