The Colorado State Board of Pharmacy regulates pharmacists, pharmacy interns, in-state and nonresident pharmacies, in-state and out-of-state prescription drug wholesalers, satellite pharmacies, specialized prescription drug outlets, other outlets, and limited licenses. The Board upholds consumer protection by licensing qualified applicants, investigating complaints, and enforcing disciplinary actions against violators of the Pharmacists, Pharmacy Business and Pharmaceuticals Act and the Board's rules.

The Board consists of five pharmacist members and two public members and works in conjunction with the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Colorado Pharmacists Society, RxPlus Pharmacies, and the Colorado Retail Council.
