Specifically, the Show Cause Order alleged that Lynn Michelle Clark, Applicant’s owner/pharmacist, ‘‘unlawfully filled numerous fraudulent controlled substance prescriptions for individuals known to divert these drugs,’’ and that she ‘‘knew or should have known that these prescriptions were fraudulent.’’ Id. at 1. The Show Cause Order further alleged that ‘‘Ms. Clark failed to fulfill her responsibility to dispense controlled substances only pursuant to a prescription issued for a legitimate medical purpose in the usual course of professional practice’’ and that she ‘‘also violated federal law by delivering prescriptions for controlled substances to persons who were not the ultimate users of the controlled substances.’’ Id. at 1–2 (citing 21 U.S.C. 829, 841(a)(1), 842(a) and 802(10) & (27)).
