#4 fake drugs printed 'Made in India' on them.

I believe you're thinking of the scandal in Iran because of the "Made in Israel" drugs, phil_b, but the entire country heaved a sigh of relief when they turned out to be Chinese fakes, saving a major politician's skin.

#5 CNN PM > seems SYRYUH'S "fake pharmaceuticals/drugs" arm reaches into AFRICA, where it provides badly needed local jobs. Workers don't seem to care that they are produc fakes.

Uh, uh, SIMULTAN SOLVING WORLD HUNGER + WORLD HEALTH IN ONE PILL SIZE???

#7 Placebo "V1agra" probably works as well as the real thing in entirely too many cases, JosephM.
