[브레이크뉴스=배종태 기자] 부산시특별사법경찰과는 시내 한약취급업소 및 의약품 판매업소 72곳을 대상으로 약사법 위반행위를 단속한 결과, 총 18곳에서 위법행위를 적발했다.

시 특사경은 일본종합감기약 제품을 수거해 식품의약품안전처에 성분 분석을 의뢰한 결과 신체적 또는 정신적 의존성을 일으키지 않는 마약성분인 디히드로코데인이 8.34밀리그램(㎎)(3정, 1회분) 검출됐다. 

 

이 성분이 들어간 복합약물을 소아가 과량 복용하게 되면 환각, 흥분 등을 일으킬 수 있어 12세 미만 소아나 임산부에게 투여하면 안 된다.

 

시 특사경은 "불법 의약품들이 시민 안전을 위협할 수 있는 만큼, 근본적인 유입 차단을 위해 부산본부세관과 간담회를 갖고, 국내의 유통경로 정보를 공유함은 물론 세관을 통한 보따리상, 특송 등에 대한 통관심사를 강화해달라"고 요청했다.

 

아울러, 해외의약품의 불법 유통을 근절하기 위해 부산본부세관, 관할 보건소 등과 긴밀히 협력을 이어가는 한편 필요시 합동 기획수사 등 업무 교류(네트워크)도 강화해 나갈 방침이다.

 

약사법에 따라 약사 또는 한약사가 아닌 자가 의약품을 판매하거나 수입허가를 받지 않은 의약품을 판매하게 되면 5년 이하의 징역 또는 5천만 원 이하의 벌금 등에 처해진다.

 

위반 사례를 보면, A약국은 약사가 퇴근한 이후인 저녁 시간에 약사가 없음에도 불구하고, 약사의 지시로 직원이 일반의약품을 판매하다가 적발됐다.

 

B의약품도매상은 한약 포장지에 제조원, 원산지, 주의사항 등 표시사항이 없는 비규격 한약재를 판매하다 적발됐다.

 

C약국은 유효기간이 3년 6개월이나 지난 불량의약품을 정상의약품과 같이 의약품 진열창고에 보관하다 적발됐다.
