SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah pharmacist accused of illegally receiving a controversial coronavirus drug “had a green light from a lot of very prominent Utah authorities to do exactly what he did,” his defense attorney asserts, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.

Dan Richards, founder and CEO of Draper-based Meds In Motion, has evidence that supports his account of what elected officials knew about how he obtained hydroxychloroquine, said defense attorney Greg Skordas.

Richards was charged Monday with a federal misdemeanor for allegedly receiving drugs mislabeled as an herbal extract from a Chinese manufacturer that wasn’t registered with the federal Food and Drug Administration.

Skordas, a recent Democratic candidate for Utah Attorney General, declined to describe the evidence or name the leaders he said were aware of Richards’ actions, beyond describing them as communications and conversations with elected and public officials.
