PHOTO: The growth of fake drugs in China

Fake

This photo taken on March 14 shows a Chinese police officer walking across a pile of fake drugs seized in Beijing in recent months, which were later destroyed. The rapid growth of Internet commerce has led to an explosion of counterfeit drugs sold around the world, with China the biggest source of fake medicines. Pharmaceutical experts say the illicit trade is now believed to be worth around $75 billion U.S. globally, with criminal gangs increasingly using the web to move their products across borders.
