Can I repackage medicine into smaller "sample" size packs

Customer Question

Can I repackage medicine into smaller "sample" size packs and resell them? These are not the "Not for resale" free samples that manufacturers provide - I'm paying retail price for a large bottle and reselling individual pills.

By "medicine" I mean nothing prescription. Likely OTC pills, or more likely vitamins.

Could you explain a little more?

Do you have a pharmacy?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't have a pharmacy (nor should I need one to sell a vitamin - convenience stores sell these all the time).
The important idea is one of repackaging products and selling them. I can't imagine why this would be a problem, but I just wanted to be sure. Pretend it's potato chips instead. Can I sell you a single potato chip of a particular brand and flavor?

Thank you for the information.

Based on your post here, my answer is no, you cannot do that--you cannot "repackage medicine into smaller "sample" size packs and resell them."
