Why do people say its illegal to purchase controlled drugs online but its legal to send them in the mail?
Question by Sweet Pacific: Why do people say its illegal to purchase controlled drugs online but its legal to send them in the mail?
There are all sorts of online pharmacies that send narcotics through the mail. As long as you have a perscription its legal. And all you need is a doctor to ask you a few medical questions and to write you the perscription and a pharmacist to fill the Rx and send it out. What is illegal about that? Is there a law that says all consultations must be done in person?Now dont get me wrong I do NOT use any narcotics I am just curious as to how this can be classified as illegal.

I’m not aware of any online pharmacies that sell narcotics. Prescriptions, not including narcotics, is common.
Sending narcotics through the mail is done all the time to doctors, and pharmacies, but not to patients (that I am aware of).
