Prescription drugs are heavily regulated and the laws are vigorously enforced. These laws cover the manufacturing, marketing, distribution, sale and purchase of prescription drugs. The demand for prescription drugs, particularly lower-cost prescription drugs (like Viagra), and difficult to get drugs like painkillers, steroids and human growth hormone, have made them big business.
Understanding Prescription Fraud
There are generally two types of prescription drugs crimes:
- Prescription fraud happening on a primarily local level for drugs such as Xanax, Vicodin, OxyContin, Hydrocodone, Oxycodone
- Internet prescription crimes that involve interstate or international trafficking through the mail. The DEA has a special On-Line Pharmacy Investigation Strategy.
