Description

Although the FDA has said fake drugs aren't a large problem across the country, south Florida appears to be the hub for the counterfeiting and distribution that occurs. This investigation found that ex-convicts have obtained licenses to be drug wholesalers, and many of them are buying drugs off patients or off the street, diluting them and reselling for high profits. State regulation hasn't caught up with the problem, and there's no way to know how many patients have received fake drugs.
