Yahoo! pharmacy ads are nothing to shout about, either


Recently I wrote about how two Web policing agencies, LegitScript and KnujOn, reported rogue pharmacies–online drug stores that fill prescriptions illegally–were the predominant drugstore ads on the Microsoft search engine Bing.

Now LegitScript and KnujOn are back, reporting the same discouraging tale for Yahoo! search.

More than 80% of the Yahoo! Internet pharmacy ads they reviewed operate contrary to US federal and state laws, they say. The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy, an industry group, jumped in immediately with praise for the report.

I’ll be fascinated to learn the Google score. Meantime, maybe we all better fill our prescriptions, as in olden days, at the corner drugstore. Assuming you live where there is a corner drugstore. Or even a corner.
