Chapter 28 Section 459

28-459.

Methamphetamine precursor; seller; duties; waiver authorized.

(1) Beginning January 1, 2012, each seller shall, before completing a sale of a methamphetamine precursor, electronically submit required information to the exchange, if the exchange is available to sellers. Required information shall include, but not be limited to:

(a) The name, age, and address of the person purchasing, receiving, or otherwise acquiring the methamphetamine precursor;

(b) The name of the product and quantity of product purchased;

(c) The date and time of the purchase;

(d) The name or initials of the seller who sold the product; and

(e) The type of identification presented by the customer, the governmental entity that issued the identification, and the number on the identification.

(2) If a seller experiences mechanical or electronic failure of the electronic logging equipment on the sales end of the transaction or a failure of the exchange and is unable to comply with subsection (1) of this section, the seller shall maintain a written log or an alternative electronic recordkeeping mechanism or may refrain from selling any methamphetamine precursor until such time as the seller is able to comply with subsection (1) of this section.

(3) The Attorney General may grant a waiver exempting a seller from compliance with subsection (1) of this section upon a showing of good cause by the seller that he or she is otherwise unable to submit log information by electronic means, including, but not limited to, any financial, technological, or other reason which would place an undue burden on the seller, as established by the Attorney General.

(4) Whenever the exchange generates a stop-sale alert, the seller shall not complete the sale unless the seller has a reasonable fear of imminent bodily harm if he or she does not complete the sale. The exchange shall contain an override function to the stop-sale alert for the seller to use in a situation in which a reasonable fear of imminent bodily harm is present.

(5) This section does not apply if a lawful prescription for the methamphetamine precursor is presented to a pharmacist licensed under the Uniform Credentialing Act.
