November 2009: "Counterfeit drugs have a history as old as snake oil, and now the high cost of many prescription drugs has driven consumers to hunt for cheaper alternatives on the Internet.

The long-running recession has made such costs more difficult for many consumers to bear, experts said."http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-counterfeit21-2009nov21,0,274882.story
