New laws effective January 1
A number of new laws will go into effect in Tennessee on January 1. More than 30 new laws will be in effect, including the prescribing of drugs and notification of opioid abuse. One law says health departments are required to accept allegations of opioid abuse or diversion and to publicize them to report offenders, but it prohibits civil liability for/or firing a person who reports suspected abuse. Other laws include health care prescribers may issue prescriptions for Schedule II controlled substances electronically by July 1, 2020. Prescribers are also authorized to do a partial fill of controlled-substance prescriptions. And beginning January 1, wine and beverage sales will be allowed on Sunday afternoons except for Christmas, Easter or Thanksgiving, in grocery stores.
