The Board of Registration in Pharmacy (“Board”) would like to inform licensees of the updated laws regarding the sale of hypodermic syringes and needles. M.G.L. c. 94C, § 27 authorizes pharmacies to sell hypodermic syringes and needles to any person, of any age, without a prescription, and without identification.
The legislation does not limit the number or type of syringes and needles that may be sold to any one customer. No requirements or limitations exist to prevent a customer from acquiring hypodermic syringes and needles.
