Internet Pharmacies: Federal Agencies and States Face Challenges Combating Rogue Sites, Particularly Those Abroad
Marcia Crosse (au)
The Internet offers consumers a convenient method for purchasing drugs that is sometimes cheaper than buying from traditional brick-and-mortar pharmacies. According to a recent Food and Drug Admin. (FDA survey), nearly 1 in 4 adult U.S. Internet consumers have purchased prescription drugs online. However, many Internet pharmacies are fraudulent enterprises that offer prescription drugs without a prescription and are not appropriately licensed. These rogue Internet pharmacies may sell drugs that are expired, improperly labeled, or are counterfeits of other drugs. A number of federal and state agencies share responsibility for administering and enforcing laws related to Internet pharmacies. This report identifies (1) how rogue sites violate federal and state laws; (2) challenges federal agencies face in investigating and prosecuting operators; (3) efforts to combat rogue Internet pharmacies; and (4) efforts to educate consumers about the risks of purchasing prescription drugs online. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
