Counties Seek To Implement Drug Disposal Ordinances - law blog

In a Dec. 24, 2014 post, legal blog JD Supra does not look favorably upon the September 9th Circuit Court ruling upholding the Alameda County Safe Drug Disposal ordinance, writing:
While the safe and proper disposal of pharmaceutical products is a laudable goal, Alameda County’s regulation is ill-conceived and arbitrary. The Ordinance itself is a collection of vaguely described provisions giving county bureaucrats seemingly unchecked open-ended power to collect fees, "set performance goals," impose penalties, and issue administrative citations for supposed non-compliance.

In contrast, the Wall Street Journal covered the pharmaceutical industry's Dec. 29 petition to the U.S. Supreme Court.
