Google "Google has agreed to pay $500 million to settle a criminal probe into ads it accepted for online Canadian pharmacies selling drugs in the United States, the U.S. Justice Department said on Wednesday. The advertisements led to illegal imports of prescription drugs into the country, the Justice Department said." Good. Companies should be held accountable for their evil behaviour.

Actually selling government unapproved medication is indirect murder and is banned in the "land of the free" and all other very much anti-socialist countries...

Free countries -- which pretty much means they are not Socialist, given that Socialism puts the group above the individual -- do not prohibit such sales.

Such sales are not murder, either direct or indirect, assuming that the seller informs the buyer of the nature of the product. Government approval does not make a medication safe, nor disapproval unsafe.
