Pharmacy in Longs fined for alleged violations of the Controlled Substances Act

HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) – A pharmacy in Longs was fined $50,000 and agreed to surrender its DEA registration to resolve alleged violations of the Controlled Substances Act, U.S. Attorney Sherri Lydon said Monday.

Parkway Discount Pharmacy, located at 2126 Highway 9 East, failed to abide by record-keeping requirements and filled prescriptions without confirming required information, according to Lydon.

The pharmacy had reportedly been notified previously of record-keeping violations and failed to make the necessary corrections.
