SECTION 391-R
Restricted access to retail sale of ipecac
General Business (GBS) CHAPTER 20, ARTICLE 26
§ 391-r. Restricted access to retail sale of ipecac. 1. Any retail
establishment that sells any product or products containing as the only
active ingredient ipecac, shall limit access to such products in a
manner designed to prevent the misuse or abuse of such products. Such
limitations shall include removing such products from shelves and other
locations that are directly accessible by customers, and placing such
products behind a pharmacy counter so that a consumer must request such
products in order to obtain such products from an employee working in
the pharmacy. If the retail establishment wishes to sell such products
but does not maintain a pharmacy at that retail location, such products
shall be made secure such that they may only be accessed by a manager,
assistant manager, acting manager or other supervisory personnel at such
location.

2. As used in this section "retail establishment" means every vendor
that in the regular course of business sells products containing ipecac
at retail directly to the public including, but not limited to,
pharmacies, grocery stores, and other retail stores.
