54-1738.  Proof that a drug is a prescription drug or legend drug. The following shall constitute prima facie evidence in any criminal or civil proceeding in this state that a drug is a prescription drug or legend drug:
(1)  In the case of a drug for which a new drug application was submitted to the United States food and drug administration, the affidavit of an officer having legal custody of the official records of the United States food and drug administration stating that such records show that the new drug application was approved, setting forth the date of approval, and further stating that the records show that proposed labeling for the drug which includes the legend "Caution: Federal law prohibits dispensing without a prescription" was approved. The affidavit shall be accompanied by a certificate that such officer has the custody.
(2)  In the case of a drug for which the United States food and drug administration does not require an approved new drug application as a condition for marketing the drug, the affidavit of an officer having legal custody of the official records of the United States food and drug administration stating that such records reflect that the drug meets the criteria of federal law to be regarded as a prescription drug and is required to bear the legend "Caution: Federal law prohibits dispensing without a prescription." The affidavit shall be accompanied by a certificate that such officer has the custody.
(3)  In the case of a drug designated a prescription drug by action of the state board of pharmacy, independently of federal law, the affidavit of an officer having legal custody of the records of the state board of pharmacy stating that such records show that the drug has been denominated a prescription drug, to which shall be attached a copy of the official document evidencing such action. The affidavit shall be accompanied by a certificate that such officer has the custody.
(4)  This section does not prevent proof that a drug is a prescription or legend drug by any method authorized by any applicable statute, rule of procedure or rule of evidence.
