Yet if your local street dealer was caught marketing $100 of the same, not billions, they could spend 5-15 years in prison. Google more than anybody from its data gathering, especially in Adwords, that the sale of illegal, controlled, counterfeit, and potentially fatal drugs was highly profitable. Bottom line this was bribe to the DOJ to kill the publicity and names involved at Google. Overall 2 billion in profits and 500 million in expenses for Google.
