THREADS OFFERING PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS FOR SALE ARE NOT ALLOWED ON TRAVELLERSPOINT AND WILL BE DELETED.
Travellerspoint does not have a Forum Rule covering said posts but, after much discussion about such threads, it has been agreed they are not in the best interest of Travellerspoint nor the poster. Therefore, any thread offering prescription medications for sale will be deleted without hesitation. These drugs include, but are not limited to, any of the anti-malarials - Malarone, Doxycycline and/or Chloroquine.
Malarone is a prescription medication across the globe. Both Doxycycline and Chloroquine are by prescription only in some countries. Offering unused prescription medications for sale, trade or free on the internet falls under the category of illegal drug trafficking. Because TP's membership is literally worldwide, there is no way to monitor where particular medications end up. And, it is not TP's job to do so. Yes, we understand that a drug like Malarone is expensive and selling an unused portion helps recoup your initial outlay. It does not make it legal. Depending on the outcome of such a transaction, the results could be devastating:
- Arrests for trafficking in illegal (prescription) drugs. (Slap on the wrist, fine, jail time - pick one.)
- Buyer suffers a reaction to the med and files suit against seller.
- Buyer dies.
- TP is considered an accomplice because the transaction took place through a thread on this site.
Yes, it sounds very dramatic, but it's not outside the realm of possibilities by a long shot. This is a great website - let's not screw it up. So, once again, threads offering medications for sale WILL be deleted.
TRAVELLERSPOINT DOES NOT ENDORSE OR CONDONE THE RESELLING OF PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS VIA THIS WEBSITE.
