The purpose of this paper is to address how some online pharmacies breach the ethical principles as well as laws that govern Internet services. The principles of nonmaleficence (or doing no harm) and beneficence ( or doing good) will be examined in reference to the questionable practices of various online pharmacies. This paper also discusses the federal and state measures that are being established to help prevent online pharmacies who are breaking laws and breaching ethical principles.
