Summary 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." Their reporting further found doctors who said their patients were "abusing their kids' prescriptions for ADHD drugs to drop weight."
