dc.description.abstract What has emerged from recent media coverage, White House statements, and congressional hearings is a fairly clear picture of the threat to public health posed by "rogue" online pharmacies and the obstacles facing state and federal agencies in regulating them. Exactly who should be regulating online pharmacies and what, if any, additional legislation is necessary is less clear. Several different courses of actions have been proposed to address the almost universally perceived threats to public health and the privacy of consumer information. What is very clear is that nobody is certain how to address the fact that many of these "rogue" online pharmacies are based in foreign countries, and this is cause for serious concern. The following discussion provides an overview of how online pharmacies operate and what potential risks they pose to public health. It also outlines the laws and authorities that regulate online pharmacies, the obstacles to enforcing existing laws, and recent actions taken against "rogue" websites. Finally, it offers an overview of several different recent proposals designed to meet the challenges of online pharmacies. en
