Internet Drug Crimes: A New and Complex Field of Law

Billions of dollars of business is conducted over the Internet every day. Some portion of those purchases are for medical products and prescription drugs. But businesses that operate as online pharmacies or online resources for controlled substances face a number of legal challenges.

Effective Defense Against All Types of Internet Drug Charges

Internet drug trafficking charges can include:

  • Illegal prescription sales and shipment of Schedule II-V pharmaceutical controlled substances (narcotics, amphetamines, GHB (Rohypnol) and anabolic steroids) directly to buyers without a medical exam by a physician
  • Drug fraud, shipping counterfeit or fake drugs ordered over the Internet
  • Illegal marketing of prescription drugs (online businesses that market steroids for animals but sell for human use)
  • Drug conspiracy charges against shippers, mailers and others involved in receiving and reshipping drugs from rogue pharmacies in the U.S., Mexico or other countries

Buying or selling prescription drugs off the Internet can be a crime possibly resulting in criminal charges of illegal drug distribution (e-trafficking) or conspiracy to manufacture illegal drugs.

Also illegal in many states is the sale of drug-related paraphernalia, a billion dollar online industry that's receiving increased attention from the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force. Drug paraphernalia can include a wide range of items, from water pipes to conversion kits for making steroids.
