FLINT, Mich. -- A Michigan pharmacy forced to shut its doors leaving many customers without their much needed medication. The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) suspending All American Pharmacy in Flint.

The sudden closure left many customers stunned and loyal patrons continued to stop by hoping to get their prescriptions and diabetic medication but to no avail.

LARA recently served a complaint against the pharmacy and the pharmacist in charge, John Lind, siting the location was among the highest volume dispensers in Michigan for commonly abused substances.

Despite its Flint location, a third of prescriptions filled last year were from visiting home physicians with a Detroit mailing address.

Officials from LARA inspected the building back in May and found expired medication and mislabeled prescription drugs. A suspension like this is only done when it is felt the public's health, safety and welfare are at risk.

Authorities removed all controlled medication from this location. According the the Michigan Pharmacists Association, to get the suspension removed they will have to go before the Board of Pharmacy which doesn't meet until mid-September.
