San Jose del Cabo, Baja California Sur. The State Commission for the Protection from Health Risks (COEPRIS) in Baja California Sur announced that Gustavo Darwin Aguirre, an anesthesiologist under investigation for possession of fentanyl, has a permit issued by the same authority to prescribe prescriptions for psychotropic drugs.
And the fact is that in the three months that have passed since the investigation began against the doctor for ordering the substance in question to his home, an unofficial version was spread that he did not have a prescription book with the appropriate stamps that his actions justified.
Antonio Juárez Navarro, Aguirre’s legal representative, released a statement saying:
“In the archives of this State Commission for the Protection against Health Risks of Baja California Sur, there is a prescription control protocol in your name for the prescription of psychotropic drugs with stamps and sheets, including from 01 to 97, issued in 2020. What I communicate to you for the benefit , I have to decide for myself.
The lawyer pointed out that this was one of the versions that were being worked on to deny and verify that the purchase was made in a regulated manner; He warned that “little by little the truth will emerge.”
For his part, the anesthesiologist said that he trusts that the other authorities will reconsider their decisions and “take into account all their measures”.
It should be recalled that the investigation against the doctor began in June by the Attorney General’s Office (FGR) when the house was searched. To date, three hearings have been held to resolve the investigation.
The case of the Southern California doctor has sparked outrage throughout the union in other areas of the Mexican Republic and even in cities across the United States, as it is believed that the profession is being criminalized.
