After hearing about a new weight loss drug that was in showbiz circles, Early News reporters went undercover to Tijuana as tourists and were able to purchase the drug, Clenbuterol, at six "farmacias" without a prescription. Further investigation revealed "the growing number of bariatric physicians who are offering medications which are not approved for weight loss for their obese patients."
