New Report Finds Online Opioid Sales On The Dark Web
BuzzFeed News reported that tech giants are blaming the "Dark Web" for the sales of illicit opioids. As part of the crackdown on the spike in opioid overdose deaths, the FDA called for Google, Facebook, and other tech companies to crack down on online pharmacies selling painkillers such as oxycodone and fentanyl. According to a new report released on Monday by the Center for Safe Internet Pharmacies, the Dark Web still hosts thousands of offerings for opioid painkillers and psychedelic drugs. People can buy these drugs using Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies. The report concluded that pharmacies on the regular internet offering prescription opioid painkillers were largely credit card scams and not actual providers of illicit drugs.
