From The Legal Perspective

Though diet pills have been around for quite some time, they knocked on Indian doors recently. Towards the end of the twentieth century, the United States and Thailand tackled the international problem of illegal Internet drug sales. A United Nations
(UN) board also called for action.

The federal Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) worked with officials in Thailand to shut down three online pharmacies that illegally sold substances containing controlled drugs such as phentermine, a diet pill. Though Internet shopping is legal, a prescription is needed to buy controlled drugs under the federal law. With authorities from both countries working together, Thai officials shut down three Internet pharmacies during November of 1999 through January of 2000.

However, the UN in February 2001 warned that not all countries had laws that could be used to stop Internet drug trafficking. The UN's International Narcotics Control Board called upon countries to adopt laws to halt Internet abuse such as the sale of illegal drugs by online pharmacies and drug stores without prescriptions.

I am aware of the dangers of what most of the diet pills being offered over the net can bring to the body. I have tried the healthiest way of losing weight which is exercise and diet. I wouldn't have resorted to weight loss pills if these two were effective for me. Maybe one way or another I may have done it the wrong manner but either way, I still can't keep up with it as I am now swamped with so many things to do. I know that the culprit is my unusual hunger pangs. I have tried different diet pills before and I would agree that most, if not all, can really bring danger to our body. To rule out my options, I went to a doctor to have some advice and I was given an appetite suppressant, given the fact that I always feel hungry most of the time. Prescopodene works for me and so far, no side effects. I'm definite that I'm really losing weight as not only that my hunger has been curbed, I also feel lighter. Indeed, there's too many ways of losing weight, you just have to find what works for you best.

Of course they did not work so I returned them. After waiting what I thought was an appropriate time I deposed of all information on this co. but now find they have processed my check.I can't find them on the internet so how do I find them?????????
