That may be. But lobbyists working to crack down on illegal online pharmacies on behalf of the pharmaceutical industry say that the tech industry’s blame-shifting is unhelpful. “If all drug sales happening on the internet were on the dark web, I’d throw a party. Then the vast majority of Americans would be safe,” says Libby Baney, an advisor to the Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacies, who is appearing on a panel at the summit. The CSIP’s own study found dozens of sites purporting to sell opioids through simple organic searches, and spotted posts marketing opioids on sites like Twitter, Reddit, and even LinkedIn. But it’s hard to tell from a distance which advertisements are scams and which are the real deal.

Among those sentenced was Garcia’s boss, renowned poet and independent journalist, Raul Rivero, who received a prison term of 20 years.
Cutts, who has worked at Google for five years, sees it differently. “I feel more like the Rick Moranis of search because I end up dealing with so many quirky and weird cases,” he said.
“It does not make sense to try and criminalize (ticket scalping),” said Marc Margot, former Island Records chief and chairman-elect of the Resale Rights Society, which was announced Tuesday. “On the other hand, there are not only real issues of consumer protection here, (but) it is unacceptable that not a penny of the estimated 200 million pounds in (annual) transactions generated by the resale of concert tickets in the U.K. is returned to the investors in the live-music industry.”

The mission of Sprit, regardless of the outcome of the winter, can be called nothing but an amazing success. Sprit had a planned mission life of approximately 92 Earth days and has now operated for over 2219 Earth days.
