Google Pays $500M Fine To The Government

Google is about to dish out $500 million, and this time it’s not on a renewable power plant! According to the Wall Street Journal, the FDA had investigated on Google profiting illegally from ads placed by non-US pharmacies. Google and other search engine sites blocked many overseas pharmacy ads in early 2010 since it is illegal for U.S. citizens to have drugs imported.

The federal investigators believe that Google took advantage of the fact that the feds often turn a blind eye in regards to imported drugs from Canada and do not typically prosecute individuals. Google placed ads for both US and Canadian pharmacies since many US citizens get their medication from Canada due to it being cheaper.
