Does anyone know what's going on at San Ysidro Pharmacy? There are a lot of DEA agents around and the pharmacy is closed today. What's up?

Many years ago I knew a guy, a brilliant mind. Gentle soul and kind. He became a pharmacist. He lost his license for sampling the goods and, I suppose, some other indescretions related to his own addiction(s) and his desire to help out "friends." I never would have thought he would be so stupid, but it seems that the temptation to indulge and also make extra cash is just too much for some people.

I am fairly certain this has nothing to do with the DEA search warrant issued and acted out on Wednesday. A simple Google of SYP you will read what is likely going on. It sounds like the state has been trying to shut him down for awhile likely due to what happened with dispensing to the 2 addicted individuals that died. I am frustrated that all of the locally owned pharmacies get targeted but CVS and Rite Aid...still standing.

If the DEA did a sting operation trying to buy Aderall and Xanax off doctors, Santa Barbara would barely have any doctors left.

we're dealing with anecdotes at this point but for being so addictive Nd harmful, there are sure a lot of local examples

That is not true. 3 out of 3 doctors I have seen in this town would not do that at all.

The pharmacy, under the cloak of boing in Montecito, may have had another Dr. Candy Man incident going on here. The DEA doesn't typically remove LOTS of files & hard drives for no reason. As they say, "It might be time to lawyer up!"

Possibly more of the same like this from 'The Independent' in November 2017: "Early last month, he was notified by California’s Board of Pharmacy ​— ​via legal papers served ​— ​that its executive officer, Virginia Herold, is out to revoke his license to dispense pharmaceuticals. According to the complaint, dated October 4, Hoyt and his pharmacy failed to exercise the due diligence required by state law in dispensing narcotics. Specifically, the complaint alleged that Hoyt failed to heed the warning signs and filled prescriptions for two patients ​— ​both of whom subsequently died ​— ​then under the care of Dr. Julio Diaz, known in media accounts as “The Candyman.” Diaz was sentenced to 27 years behind bars in 2015 for the illegal sale of narcotics. The federal indictment against Diaz charged that 12 of his patients died of overdoses as a result of his illegal prescriptions. That number would double after a subsequent investigation. Hoyt’s pharmacy is not the first to be charged, only the most recent. Earlier this year, the lights went out at two Peter Caldwell pharmacies in the face of such litigation. Three years ago, the owner of the Sansum Pharmacy ​— ​then owned by an independent operator other than the clinic that bore its name ​— ​had his license revoked. Likewise, The Medicine Shoppe franchise once located at 1435 State Street did not go unscathed."
