Retired pharmacist admits drugs charges

10:31 am on 19 May 2009

A retired Pukekohe pharmacist has pleaded guilty to drugs charges.

Samuel Pulman admitted to three charges relating to methamphetamine, or "P", including manufacturing, supply and possession of a class A drug.

He was due to stand trial in the High Court in Auckland on Monday but instead pleaded guilty to the charges.

The Pharmacy Council says it is improper to comment on a matter that has yet to be resolved in the courts.

It says Pulman has not been practising as a pharmacist and is not on its list.
