To the Editor: Although the US Department of
Justice has raised concerns about the sale of illicit drugs such as ecstasy,
psilocybin, and gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB) over the Internet,1- 3 I
am unaware of any articles in the legal or medical literature about the online
sale of opiates without a prescription.
