China Allows Poisining By Mail?

Just a little joke there….

Actually China is allowing people to order meds via the net. The reason for my joke is that many official bodies, both Chinese and ohters, have stated that up to 90% of the medicine sold in China is actually counterfit. This added to China’s less than stellar reputation with quality of any goods that they sell, makes me a little nervous.


“BEIJING — China has approved 27 websites to sell medicine to individual consumers via the internet, the State Food and Drug Administration announced on its website on Tuesday .

The administration stipulates that the 27 online pharmaceutical dealers could only sell over-the-counter medications to individual consumers, not to other businesses or medical facilities.

According to a provisional regulation regarding the online transaction of drugs, those selling medications online must receive a license and put their license code on the front page of their transaction websites.
