SUMMARY: Tara Sweeney, Assistant Secretary—Indian Affairs. [FR Doc. 2020–18080 Filed 8–18–20; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4337–15–P DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE Drug Enforcement Administration [Docket No. 17–20] jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Morning Star Pharmacy & Medical Supply 1; Decision And Order The Drug Enforcement Administration (hereinafter, DEA or Government) served Morning Star Pharmacy & Medical Supply 1 (hereinafter, Respondent Pharmacy) with an Order to Show Cause (hereinafter, OSC) seeking to revoke DEA Certificate of Registration Number FM 3950070 (hereinafter, registration). Administrative Law Judge Exhibit (hereinafter, ALJX) 1 (OSC). In response to the OSC, Respondent Pharmacy submitted a timely request for a hearing before Administrative Law Judge VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:34 Aug 18, 2020 Jkt 250001 (hereinafter, ALJ) Charles Wm. Dorman. ALJX 2. The hearing was held in Dallas, Texas from July 17–19, 2017. On October 31, 2017, the ALJ issued a Recommended Rulings, Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law, and Decision (hereinafter, ‘‘Recommended Decision’’ or ‘‘RD’’), which recommended that I revoke Respondent Pharmacy’s registration and that I deny any pending application for renewal or modification of Respondent Pharmacy’s registration. Respondent Pharmacy filed Exceptions to the Recommended Decision, and the record was forwarded to me for final agency action. Having considered the record in its entirety, including Respondent Pharmacy’s Exceptions, I agree with the RD that the record established, by substantial evidence, that Respondent Pharmacy’s continued registration is inconsistent with the public interest. I further agree with the RD that Respondent Pharmacy failed to accept responsibility for its failures to meet the responsibilities of a registrant and that Respondent Pharmacy did not present adequate evidence of mitigation or remedial measures. Accordingly, I conclude that the appropriate sanctions are (1) for Respondent Pharmacy’s DEA registration to be revoked; and (2) for any pending application by Respondent Pharmacy to modify or renew its registration be denied. I. ALLEGATIONS The Government alleged that Respondent Pharmacy has violated various federal and state laws related to controlled substances. 1. Ijeoma Amadi (hereinafter, Ms. Amadi) employed her husband, Dr. Emmanuel Amadi (hereinafter, Dr. Amadi), as a pharmacist at Respondent Pharmacy, in violation of 21 CFR 1301.76(a). Having surrendered two DEA registrations, Dr. Amadi is ineligible for employment in a capacity where he has access to controlled substances absent a waiver from the DEA. ALJX 1, at 2. Though Ms. Amadi wrote to the DEA in July 2015 to ask for a waiver, her request was denied and, by continuing to employ Dr. Amadi at Respondent Pharmacy, Respondent Pharmacy remains in ongoing violation of 21 CFR 1301.76(a). 2. Ms. Amadi also employed Dr. Amadi as a pharmacist at a second pharmacy she owned, Morning Star Pharmacy located in Cedar Hill, Texas (hereinafter, Cedar Hill), in violation of 21 CFR 1301.76(a). Id. at 2. 3. Between August 2014 and May 2015, pharmacists at Respondent Pharmacy and Cedar Hill filled over 200 controlled substance prescriptions PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 51045 outside the usual course of professional practice, in violation of 21 CFR § 1306.06, and in contravention of their ‘‘corresponding responsibility’’ under 21 CFR 1306.04(a). Id. at 2. 4. Between August 2014 and June 2015, pharmacists at Respondent Pharmacy and Cedar Hill, including Dr. Amadi, failed to comply with the above federal laws and were also in violation of the following federal and state laws relating to controlled substances, 21 U.S.C. 823(f)(4); Tex. Health & Safety Code § 481.074(a); Tex. Health & Safety Code § 481.128; and 22 Tex. Admin. Code § 291.33(c)(2). Additionally, Respondent Pharmacy engaged in conduct that demonstrates negative experience in its dispensing with respect to controlled substances. Id. at 3–4 (citing 21 U.S.C. 823(f)(2)). Specifically, the OSC alleged that Respondent Pharmacy filled prescriptions that lacked required information and/or that contained two or more of the following red flags, without resolving those red flags: (1) Prescriptions for highly abused controlled substances such as hydrocodone,1 alprazolam, promethazine with codeine, and carisoprodol; (2) prescriptions written to individuals who travelled long distances and/or unusual routes to obtain their prescriptions and fill them at Respondent Pharmacy or Cedar Hill; (3) prescriptions from individuals obtaining the same or similar combinations of controlled substances from the same small number of providers; (4) prescriptions for highly abused drug cocktails, such as hydrocodone and alprazolam, hydrocodone and promethazine with codeine, and hydrocodone and carisoprodol; and (5) prescriptions for controlled substances which were purchased with cash. Respondent Pharmacy also failed to document specific information as legally required on either the hard-copies of the prescriptions or in the pharmacy’s electronic patient profiles. Id. at 3–7. 5. Respondent Pharmacy failed to provide an initial inventory of controlled substances, in violation of 21 U.S.C. 827(a)(1) and 21 CFR 1304.11(b). Id. at 7. 6. Respondent Pharmacy failed to document the date it received approximately 80 different shipments of controlled substances on its invoices, in violation of 21 U.S.C. 827(a)(3) and 21 CFR 1304.21(d). Id. at 7. 1 All of the referenced prescriptions for hydrocodone are actually for hydrocodone/APAP, which is hydrocodone plus acetaminophen. E:\FR\FM\19AUN1.SGM 19AUN1
