§16-5J-8. Unlawful conduct; penalties.

It is a misdemeanor for any person to solicit, receive, accept, deliver or transmit, by mail or otherwise, material originating from the human body on behalf of any person operating a laboratory not in possession of a license under this article regardless of whether such laboratory is located in this state and, upon conviction thereof, such person shall be fined not less than five hundred dollars. The provisions of this section do not apply to transactions with any person operating a laboratory located in another state, which laboratory has been issued a license or permit in conformity with the "Clinical Laboratories Improvement Act of 1967," and related statutes. Neither does this section apply to transactions with laboratories operated in this state which are exempt from the license requirements of this article.
