Title 18 : Health

Chapter 084A : Vermont Prescription Monitoring System

(Cite as: 18 V.S.A. § 4281)
  • § 4281. Legislative intent

    The General Assembly recognizes the important public health benefits of the legal medical use of controlled substances and also the significant risk to public health that can arise due to the abuse of those substances. It is the intent of this chapter to create the Vermont Prescription Monitoring System, which will provide an electronic database and reporting system for electronic monitoring of prescriptions for Schedules II, III, and IV controlled substances, as defined in 21 C.F.R. Part 1308, as amended and as may be amended, to promote the public health through enhanced opportunities for treatment for and prevention of abuse of controlled substances, without interfering with the legal medical use of those substances. (Added 2005, No. 205 (Adj. Sess.), § 1.)
