NABP Position Paper Calls for Action Against Proliferation of Rogue Internet Drug Outlets
Date:5/5/2009

mer Protection Act, which prohibits the dispensing of controlled substance medications over the Internet without a valid prescription that has included a face-to-face physical examination," the position paper states.

NABP also points out the untrustworthiness of supposedly safe foreign Internet drug outlets. "Many sites purporting to be Canadian pharmacies, for instance, sell medications that are not approved under Canadian regulations, and many have no discernable ties to Canada whatsoever," the paper states. NABP further calls attention to the unreliability of Web site domain name registration information and the lack of accountability of the registrars and Internet service providers that sell and host these illegally operating Web sites. The paper also implicates the credit card companies that process financial transactions involving illegal sales of prescription medicines.

The current position paper, like its 2003 precursor, calls on lawmakers, regulators, and others in a position to safeguard the public health to curtail the illegal sales of prescription medicine online. As consumer use of Internet drug outlets grows exponentially and has shifted to purchasing controlled substances, NABP foresees the possibility of "a complete compromise of the US drug distribution system, and subsequent patient injury or death" and stresses the urgency to address the problem. In light of this public health threat, NABP reaffirms its commitment to educate patients on the potential dangers of purchasing prescription medicine online and empower them to make informed choices.

The complete position paper is posted under News/Press on the NABP Web site, at http://www.nabp.net.
