[Autom. eng. transl.] With this judgment the Court of Cassation has specified that the medical prescription has a complex juridical nature of certificate and authorization. It therefore commits the crime of ideological forgery in certificates pursuant to art. 480 of the Italian Criminal Code, the doctor who gives prescriptions of prescriptions written in white on each sheet and with his stamp to the pharmacist. Pharmacists who fill in prescriptions issued and signed in blank by the doctor answer for the abusive use of the medical profession.
