Smuggled pharmaceuticals are a last option for most locals in medically impoverished countries. It is a known and agreed upon truth that dealing in contraband pills in said countries is quietly becoming a lucrative practise.Drug smugglers have been identified as benefactors of slow approvals for this pills and political corruption. Mexican pills, are my first pitch in the illustration of smuggled pills (though not all), if we may be so bold.
Owing to how prevalent the use of this drugs are, one may perhaps be forgiven for implicating government officials in the smuggling rings. The amount of drugs that legally make it into the country fall short of the national demand . This inability to meet demand has largely contributed to the smuggling of medical pills. Pharmaceutical smugglers, first and foremost bypass customs agents and checking. The health authorities, are the direction many eyeballs are turned, be it on mere speculation that they are involved in smuggling or that they are doing nothing about the smuggling.The spread of smuggled pharmaceuticals is also facilitated by the fact that the health authorities do not properly regulate the pharmacies, where the smuggling occurs.
Deceiving security at checkpoints are how this pharmaceuticals hit national soil and it is not a well-kept secret. It is not a proven fact , but numerous cases have implicated politicians in the smuggling rings. Law enforcement , in a response to curb the growing spread of smuggled pharmaceuticals have effected many years sentence for people convicted, of pharmaceutical smuggling and taskforces to infiltrate, find and neutralise smuggling rings. It requires not many words to point out, that even with these many strict and efficient measures, pharmaceutical smuggling laughs in the face of law enforcement.
Certain authority figures and related experts can be quoted associating the lucrative nature of contraband pills with profit from illegal arms dealing, oil or narcotics. It is possible to eradicate the scourge of pharmaceutical smuggling if the law is applied to its full extent.What needs to be invested upon, is an efficient, thorough drug import and export organ, to regulate distribution means of smuggled pharmaceuticals.The passage of smuggled pharmaceuticals is further smoothened by forged certification and inadequate testing by the appropriate Experts.
A major means through which this pharmaceuticals are spread, is through unchecked corporations and companies which are perceived to be above the law. This corporations , companies and some pharmacists are backed by influential people in high echelons of administration and law, making them the perfect cover. The same people running the rings on illegal arms dealings and narcotics, have been implicated in the spread of pharmaceutical drugs.
