The 60 Minutes story on the growing danger of counterfeit prescription medicines that ran over the weekend has sparked interest in the problem. Some, like this piece in Medical News Today about the arrest of medicine counterfeiters in the UK and in the Irish Times on the scope of the problem in Ireland, help underscore the problem posed to patients. There have also been a couple of good international snippets in outlets like Politico and TVNewser calling attention to 60 Minutes' story. Also, John Morton, Assistant Secretary for Immigration and Customs Enforcement at the Department of Homeland Security was talking about it on CSPAN - at about the 23:40 mark in the interview.

All are worth looking at.
