The actions of the pharmacy board in this case, as well as this man having to go to court to have his reputation ruined, is way over the top for the nature of his actions. What he did can only be seen as a lapse in judgement, and in my mind, is far less than the doctor in another news story today who sent sext messages to his lover while getting ready for surgery. In that case, the medical society turned a blind eye and the case in court was dismissed. Both cases are at the same level of misjudgement IMHO. If he were passing out opiates without a prescription, or stealing them from the pharmacy and selling them on the street, that would be an entirely different matter. The justice system just doesn't make sense to me. I shake my head almost every time I read a court decision story..the judge's decisions are either way too lenient or way too excessive for the nature of the crime.

Not to much detail here but I can say I've made numerous unnecessary visits to my doctor for Rx renewals and that's all he did, sit at his desk, scratch out the same Rx, and it's "next patient please". Not so much as a blood pressure test.

Professional misconduct in a very , VERY important responsibility. Firing offense in the rest of Canada, nothing less would even be entertained. So-called "Professionals" here are all working in "Consequence-free Ville".
