Abstract: This  paper  examines  the  rise  of  online  pharmacies  and  the  issues  of  drug  importation,  focusing  on  the  problem  of  counterfeiting,  and  reimportation.  It  describes  the  positive  and  negative  aspects  of  online  consumer  drug  purchasing,  overviews  existing  regulation  of  importation  and  reimportation,  and  proposes  possible  solutions  to  the  problems  that  arise.  In the  end,  it  concludes  that  individual  importation  and reimportation  should  not  be allowed, except in very limited circumstances, to continue to safeguard consumer safety.
