PSM Applauds Launch of the Center for Safe Internet Pharmacies
Partnership for Safe Medicines Executive Director Scott LaGanga released the following statement on the launch of the Center for Safe Internet Pharmacies (CSIP):
“Today, the Partnership for Safe Medicines is pleased to welcome another powerful ally in the fight against counterfeit drugs. It is our sincerest hope that the launch of the Center for Safe Internet Pharmacies will make it far more difficult for criminals to peddle dangerous and potentially lethal fake ‘medicines’ to unsuspecting victims.
“Instead of sitting idly by or pleading ignorance while phony internet pharmacies prey upon our most vulnerable citizens, the CSIP and their member companies are taking an active role in educating the public and helping to root out online scam artists. These are companies that understand the responsibility they share in protecting consumers, and by their participation in CSIP are making a public commitment to actively withhold their services from criminal organizations.
“The Partnership for Safe Medicines welcomes a new ally in the fight against counterfeit drugs. We wish CSIP the best of luck and look forward to developing a close working relationship, and hope the entire online and payment industries emulate their actions.”
