All applications required by this section shall state clearly and specifically the kind and quantity of alcohol required and the use to which it is to be put by the person purchasing it, and that the person will not use any of the alcohol procured for any other use than that stated in the application.

All prescriptions and applications required by this section shall be canceled as soon as filled by the person filling the same, by having “canceled” plainly written or stamped thereon and signed and dated by the person who filled the same, and shall be kept open to public inspection.  No person shall furnish alcohol more than once on any such prescription or application.

Each holder of such a permit shall register in an alphabetically arranged book, kept exclusively for that purpose, all prescriptions of physicians and dentists, in the following order:  the name of the physician or dentist, the name of the person prescribed for, the quantity and kind of alcohol, and the use for which prescribed.

The person making the sale shall indorse upon the prescription the date upon which it was filled and the person's own name.  Each such holder shall keep a record of applications, showing the date of each, by whom made, the quantity and kind of alcohol supplied, and when, where, and for what purpose and by whom such alcohol was to be used.  Each applicant shall certify to the same by signing the applicant's name in such record book.  Such book shall be open at all times during business hours to the inspection of the division.
