Mississippi Code Annotated Section 41-29-319 authorizes a pharmacist to dispense an opioid antagonist pursuant to a Standing Order to a person in the State of Mississippi who is at risk of experiencing an opioid related overdose or to a family member, friend or other person in a position to assist such person at risk of experiencing an opioid related overdose. The law provides that prior to dispensing an opioid antagonist pursuant to a Standing Order, a pharmacist shall complete the applicable training as required by law or regulation.
