A. The Ryan Haight Online Pharmacy Consumer Protection Act of 2008 (‘‘Ryan Haight Act’’) was enacted on October 15, 2008. The Act amended the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) by adding various provisions to prevent the illegal distribution and dispensing of controlled substances by means of the Internet. The law became effective on April 13, 2009. Two of the most important new requirements are the in-person medical evaluation requirement for prescribing practitioners and the modified registration requirement for online pharmacies. Further information regarding the implementing regulations concerning this matter may be found in its Federal Register publication on April 6, 2009 posted at www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/fed_regs/rules/2009.
