U.S. Prescription Drug System Under Attack

The following links are to a very informative series of articles from The Washington Post on drug diversion and counterfeiting problems. These articles are a great resource to refer both patients and health care professionals to when they are interested in the problems associated with such issues as Canadian drug imports and internet prescriptions. This series, identifying and documenting the shadow market for prescription drugs, resulted from a yearlong investigation by two Washington Post reporters that included more than 500 interviews and the analysis of 100,000 pages of court filings, regulatory cases, investigative reports and computer records.
