Report: Ohio governor’s office forced out Ohio State Board of Pharmacy’s executive director

BY Michael Johnsen

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio governor's office pushed for the firing of the executive director of the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy, according to a report released by the Associated Press Tuesday, citing a timeline created by former board executive director Kyle Parker. According to the report, the executive director was not aggressive enough in combating prescription-drug abuse. 
 
"Ohio is in an all-out war with opiates and pill mills, and the executive director was sitting on his hands," Rob Nichols, spokesman for the Ohio governor's office said, according to the report. "It was either indifference or tone deafness, or he was being an obstructionist, but either way, we wanted to move the board in a new direction."
 
In August, the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy announced that Parker would step down on Sept. 1 to pursue other interests. The board appointed Eric Griffin, compliance and enforcement supervisor, as the interim executive director.
