Physician to Pay $120,000 to Resolve Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention Act Allegations Related to Controlled Substances

AUG 02 (TULSA, OK) - Dr. George Cohlmia, a physician with offices in Tulsa and Tahlequah, entered into a settlement agreement to pay $120,000 to resolve civil allegations that he violated the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention Act of 1970, announced Special Agent in Charge Clyde E. Shelley, Jr. of the Drug Enforcement Administration and Acting United States Attorney Loretta F. Radford of the Northern District of Oklahoma. The Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention Act of 1970 regulates the manufacture and distribution of controlled substances.

According to the settlement agreement, between April 2013 and June 2015, it was alleged that Dr. Cohlmia dispensed controlled substances outside of his DEA registered location and permitted employees to purchase and dispense controlled substances to themselves, other employees, and Dr. Cohlmia.  It was further alleged that Dr. Cohlmia failed to keep an inventory and other required records concerning the ordering, receipt and dispensing of controlled substances.

This case was handled by Assistant United States Attorney Marianne Hardcastle. The claims asserted by the government are allegations only, and there has not been any determination of liability.
