AMY HARMON - Writes an interesting report.

I think though that, in general when I read the newspapers reporters will write what grabs the readers attention.....Theres many sides to a story, but perhaps if some of the different views were to be put into print it wouldn't make the headlines so to speak and grab the readers attention...? So the most dramatic/headline grabbers get put into print - but thats what the reporters are paid to do right? I don't know i'm not a reporter lol

Out of all the threads, the report of this site and particular 'story' was very brief.

>For a hefty markup, dozens of Web sites fill orders for drugs, no prescription required, though to do so is not legal.

In the US - however the particular poster she mentions in this report (I think) comes from the UK - and although this news report is from the US, the person she mention buying the medication being from the UK I believe it is actually legal for them to purchase a medication from the internet because we have different laws to the US, but this wasn't mentioned...Its doesn't mention about places like Thailand and Spain where I think the laws differ and where people may be from posting on these forums which are in effect based internationally and whereby you can walk into these pharmacy's and buy many medications over the counter without a prescription in real life forgetting the internet.

>Instead, customers are asked to fill out a form describing themselves and their symptoms, often with all the right boxes helpfully pre-checked.

From what I understand that part of the report has not been thoroughly investigated..

>"Being a Patient
Young, Assured and Playing Pharmacist to Friends"

Please don't jump to conclusions ;-)

Be patient. Always check with your Pharmacist and rest assured you always have your friends.
