Counterfeit Pharmaceutical ROI

The following quote from Martin Van Triest, Interim Director of Rx-360, illustrates the high profitability of counterfeiting pharmaceuticals:

“If a counterfeiter invests $2,000 in faking a DVD, he may turn that into $20,000; if he invests $2,000 into faking cocaine, he may turn that into $200,000; but if he invests $2,000 into faking a pharmaceutical drug, he may turn that money into $2 million! At the same time, the punishment for getting caught counterfeiting pharmaceuticals is far less severe than for counterfeiting illegal recreational drugs such as cocaine. “
