Some of our favorite Roadfood locations are at old-time soda fountains inside of pharmacies. We tend to forget that these places are also actual working pharmacies, in charge of dispensing controlled substances. Unfortunately, the pharmacy side of Bauder's (see the review) has run into some serious trouble, and it does not look good. Seems that since 2008, the pharmacy has ordered about a million hydrocodone tablets from 14 different wholesalers (which is suspicious behavior in itself), yet can account for the legal dispensation of only 358,000 of the tablets.

The Iowa Board of Pharmacy has filed 20 charges against Bauder's co-owner and pharmacist Mark Graziano, whose pharmacist license has also been suspended. The Board of Pharmacy charges are administrative. It will be up to state and federal authorities to decide whether to pursue criminal charges. In our opinion, unless Bauder's can satisfy the Board of Pharmacy, the nature of the situation would indicate that criminal charges will indeed follow.


I hope I never wrote that Bauder's ice cream is so good that it's addictive.
