UK’s The Telegraph reports that drug gangs are switching from selling cocaine to selling fake Viagra in order to realize much higher profits and avoid stiffer jail terms for dealing in the cocaine trade. Fake Viagra is made from a cocktail of prescription drugs that can be sold for profit margins of as much as 2000 times higher than hard drugs and sold to millions of buyers online, making it much less risky to deal. Of course, what’s good for the pusher isn’t good for the user. The fake Viagra is not only illegal but extremely dangerous as highlighted in a report out of Singapore last month which claimed that the counterfeit drugs have killed four men and left three others in a coma after just five months of taking the drugs.
