Buyers flock to lax online pharmacies: Net stores that don't require prescriptions draw the most visitors (Christopher Rowland, April 7, 2005, Boston Globe)

Bought any discount drugs on an Internet site without a prescription from your doctor? Join the crowd.

Of an estimated 17.4 million visits to all online drugstores in the fourth quarter of 2004, 63 percent, or 10.9 million, were visits to sites that either require no prescription or offer a doctor's ''remote consultation" before a prescription is written, according to an analysis of browsing patterns by comScore Networks Inc., a Reston, Va., firm that tracks consumer patterns on the Web.

It's been amusing to watch Democrats, who used to think the FDA and its regulatory scheme one of the crowning achievements of liberalism, destroy it.

I wonder if Henry Waxman and Edward Markey like receiving 100 e-mails a week, offering Viagra, Percocet, and on down the line.
