China arrests dozens, seizes tens of millions of counterfeit drugs

Tools

Counterfeit drugs manufactured in China and sold in the U.S. have become a plague on the industry, but China also suffers from counterfeits being sold to its own citizens. According to CRIEnglish, police have arrested members of two gangs making counterfeit cold medicines and other drugs and selling them to unsuspecting villagers. The publication says 35 suspects have been arrested and more than 83 million tablets were seized in one raid. In another, 40 people were taken into custody and 6.5 million tablets seized. China actually offers a reward of nearly $50,000 to people who turn drug counterfeiters in to authorities. Story | More
