Illegal Pharmaceuticals

There’s been a tremendous rise in the illegal trade of prescription drugs. This follows the development of stronger and stronger prescription medication being developed and marketed, and the fact that every second North American is taking a prescribed medicine so access becomes quite simple. The potency of many prescribed medicines, and the ability for users to abuse the system of acquiring prescriptions, creates a unique and growing concern.

A number of resources exist online if you, or someone near to you, is involved in the trade or consumption of illegal pharmaceuticals.

Commonly abused prescription medicines are showcased in a slide-show HERE.
