When a customer purchases certain pharmacy items, the Stop Meth system alerts the cashier to collect more required information and a signature.

  • The customer’s name, phone number, ID number, and state will be printed on the receipt, stored in the database, and appear on the transaction report.
  • A manual or electronic signature will also be required from the customer. If the pharmacy does not use a signature capture pad, a second receipt will be printed for the customer to sign.
  • The signed receipt must be retained in the store’s records.
