Many Internet pharmacies leave the impression that they are located in Canada and are selling legitimate brand-name drugs that have been manufactured in Canada. However, these claims of legitimacy are often blatantly false. Many, if not most, of the drugs are not approved by the FDA and are not safe or effective. They are often not even approved by the Canadian government. That is because medicines that are not used domestically in Canada are not subject to the scrutiny of Canada’s safety laws. Therefore, drugs from Canadian Internet pharmacies can come from anywhere in the world. This has made Canadian Internet pharmacies the primary supplier of counterfeit drugs to the United States.
