A new report by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University (CASA) underscores the results of other recent online pharmacy studies – showing that’s it’s too easy to buy prescription drugs, including controlled substances, without a prescription online.
Only 15 percent of 365 sites examined in the study required a prescription. According to Reuters, CASA recommends that the United States negotiate treaties with other governments to shut down illegal Internet trafficking of prescription drugs.
In April, the U.S. Senate passed a bill that included tougher regulation for online pharmacies — but the legislation is still awaiting action in the House.
