(a) A registration under Code Section 16-13-36 to manufacture, distribute, or dispense a controlled substance may be suspended or revoked by the State Board of Pharmacy upon a finding that the registrant:
(1) Has furnished false or fraudulent material information in any application filed under this article;
(2) Has been convicted of a felony under any state or federal law relating to any controlled substance;
(3) Has had his federal registration to manufacture, distribute, or dispense controlled substances suspended or revoked;
(4) Has violated any provision of this article or the rules and regulations promulgated under this article; or
(5) Has failed to maintain sufficient controls against diversion of controlled substances into other than legitimate medical, scientific, or industrial channels.
(b) The State Board of Pharmacy may limit revocation or suspension of a registration to the particular controlled substance with respect to which grounds for revocation or suspension exist.
(c) If the State Board of Pharmacy suspends or revokes a registration, all controlled substances owned or possessed by the registrant at the time of suspension or the effective date of the revocation order shall be placed under seal. No disposition may be made of substances under seal until the time for taking an appeal has elapsed or until all appeals have been concluded unless a court, upon application therefor, orders the sale of perishable substances and the deposit of the proceeds of the sale with the court. Upon a revocation order becoming final, all controlled substances shall be forfeited to the state.
(d) The State Board of Pharmacy shall promptly notify the bureau of all orders suspending or revoking registration and all forfeitures of controlled substances.
