California board delays drug-tracking system

San Francisco Chronicle, March 26, 2008
The California Board of Pharmacy has delayed the implementation of a law requiring electronic tracking of all prescription drugs to reduce the chance of counterfeits entering the supply chain. This is the second major delay for the law, which was passed in 2004. The law would make California the only state in the country to have approved such a stringent drug-tracking requirement.
