Drugs On-Line

Writing in The American, Roger Bate on purchasing drugs over the Internet:

The World Health Organization reports that drugs from websites that conceal their physical address are counterfeit in more than 50 percent of cases. Our findings are consistent with WHO’s assessment. All the drug failures came from websites lacking a physical address. Our research suggests that even non-approved websites that at least have a physical address will deliver decent brand–name drugs, though the sites break the law by selling drugs without a prescription.
