Title: Implementation of the Provision of the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act of 2016 Relating to the Partial Filling of Prescriptions for Schedule II Controlled Substances 

On July 22, 2016, the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) of 2016 became law.

The Drug Enforcement Administration is proposing to amend its regulations to implement this statutory change.
