According to a public notice on the pharmacy's front door, the board suspended the license Tuesday. A reason for the suspension has not been released yet, but we are working to confirm more information.

"No person may remove or dispose of these sealed dangerous drugs without an order of a court or prior approval of the Board."

A piece of paper taped next to the notice reads, "PHARMACY CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE," and, "PLEASE CONSULT YOUR PRESCRIBER FOR GUIDANCE."
