    Sorry to barge in, but I wanted to see if this situation is as strange as it sounds. From a local news report:

    http://www.statejournal.com/story/26575049/barboursville-pharmacy-owner-denies-allegations-of-drug-dealing-money-laundering-at-federal-arraignment

    It would seem to me that there is a definite "chain of command" issue here. The licensed pharmacist is supposed to supervise the pharmacy intern ....who has the right to fire the pharmacist... Has anyone ever heard of a situation like this?

    (I have no connection with this place - I live two states away. I just happened to read this story in the paper while visiting my parents.)

    -------------

    According to another report, this operation is responsible for 328,000 "missing" oxycodone tablets.

    I knew a pharmacist whose parents died while he was in pharmacy school. He took the life insurance money and bought the independent pharmacy where he worked. It's a rarity, but can happen.
