See also 21 U.S.C. 822(a)(2) (‘‘Every person who dispenses * * * shall obtain from the Attorney General a registration. * * *’’); id. § 841(a)(1) (‘‘Except as authorized by this subchapter, it shall be unlawful for any person knowingly or intentionally * * * to * * * distribute, or dispense * * * a controlled substance’’); id. § 843(a)(2) (‘‘It shall be unlawful for any person knowingly or intentionally * * * to use in the course of the * * * distribution[] or dispensing of a controlled substance * * * a registration number which is * * * issued to another person’’). Respondent did not report the violations, Tr. 170, and in his brief he trivialized the violations as just ‘‘mistakes’’ of the sort that ‘‘[c]lerks, and other people who work for doctors, make.’’ Resp. Br. (Pt. II) at 22. Notwithstanding the illegal nature of these acts (which had happened shortly after Respondent began his arrangement with Just USA), and that Respondent had no way of confirming the validity of Just USA’s representation that its employees had used his name and registration to backdate prescriptions only once or twice, Respondent continued to work for them. As the record demonstrates, Respondent issued hundreds of illegal prescriptions for highly abused and dangerous controlled substances.32 While Respondent ceased his illegal activity—after engaging in it for approximately one year—he maintained throughout the hearing that his ‘‘prescribing was appropriate,’’ Tr. 99, and that it was illegal in only about two or three other States in addition to the seven States identified by Just USA and where he prescribed to anyway. Id. at 161. Moreover, when confronted with the evidence showing that that he had prescribed to persons in those seven States, Respondent’s did not accept responsibility for having done so, but rather blamed others. I thus conclude that Respondent has not accepted responsibility for his misconduct and that he has failed to rebut the Government’s prima facie showing that his continued registration ‘‘would be inconsistent with the public interest.’’ 21 U.S.C. 823(f). Accordingly, Respondent’s registration will be 32 As found above, Respondent maintained at the hearing that hydrocodone is not addictive or dangerous. Yet in 2002, the abuse of hydrocodone drugs resulted in more than 27,000 emergency room visits. Moreover, the drug is also highly abused by teenagers, among others. Respondent’s testimony buttresses my conclusion that Respondent cannot be trusted to acted responsibly.
