What Google was facilitating is as I understand illegal in the USA
If you are talking about the ads then yes, the advertisements were illegal.
If you dont like it lobby your politicians
I am sure that wouldn't do anything seeing as I live in Canada
And how do you know where or what you're buying
counterfeit drugs are a major problem are you getting the real deal or a placebo or somthing that will harm you.
I agree which is why you have to use legit pharmacies who only accept legit prescriptions... which from what I have read was the case with the majority of the pharmacies in question
From reading a write-up of the case Google refused to work with the AMA approved system for validating the prescriptions and even after being warned repeatedly
I have no issue with the fine. I think you could benefit from a reading comprehension course.
I will try to simplify this for you. Read slowly and then re-read slowly so you don't misunderstand what I am saying.
1) I find it sad that the USA government will not do anything to bring down the costs of drugs in the USA.
2) I find it even more sad that the USA government will go after those adverting legitimate prescriptions at a fraction of the cost when people can't afford their required prescriptions, when you consider that they won't do anything to help control the costs.
3) I feel this is made even worse when the USA government is discussing removing the few services that it's citizens can use to subsidize the highest prescription prices in the world. (medicaid and medicare)
Try not to turn those 3 points into, "You want people taking illegal drugs?" or "you want people taking prescription drugs without a prescription?"
I don't want those things, I want people to be able to afford their required medicine and have it not negatively impact their lives financially, even if that means buying drugs from ... gasp... Canada
