Bill Waggaman of the state's office of Narcotics and Danger- ous Drugs said many of the inter- net-based operations are over- seas. Howe:cer, he hopes the law will deter people who might be considering setting up shop in the First State. "If you believe the statistics you read, prescription drug abuse has surpassed illicit drug abuse. It's a terrible, terrible problem," he said. "This is a good bill and we think we can make it work." Rep. Bethany Hall-Long, D- Middletown, said the bill won't affect people who have legiti- mate prescriptions from their doctor and use online or mail-or- der pharmacy services to save money on drug costs. "This is aimed at addressing what they call rogue pharma- cies... They're becoming a real law enforcement problem, and they're threatening lives," said Hall-Long, who teamed up with Senate Majority Leader Patricia Blevins, D-Elsmere, and Sen. Margaret Rose Henry, D-Wilm- ington East, to get the bill through the General Assembly.

Using online questionnaires - which sometimes allow a person to suggest a medication - is banned. Internet pharmacy owners or operators convicted of breaking that part of the law could face up to eight years in prison and maximum fines of $25,000. People who use illicit internet pharmacies could face up to a year in jail and a $1,000 time.
