BOLIVIA HAS SEIZED NEARLY 2 TONS OF BLACK MARKET MEDICINE

Insight Crime on 12th April reported that customs authorities in Bolivia have seized nearly 2 tons of contraband medicine this year, highlighting the scale of an illegal industry that many countries throughout Latin America are struggling to combat.  In just the first 3 months of 2019, customs officials in Bolivia have seized 1.9 tons of contraband pharmaceutical drugs.  The confiscated drugs are often anti-inflammatories, antibiotic creams and cancer-treating products.
