Need a little “pep” in your, ummm, step? Don’t take to a public forum like Craigslist to purchase illegal drugs sans a prescription.

First of all, it’s dumb; you never know what those drugs are being cut with. Secondly, it’s dumb.

Most of all, it’s dumb and federal officials and Big Pharma are gonna come down on you just like they did with a local Yorba Linda man named Nathan Welther who allegedly decided to take his pharmaceutical endeavors to the world wide web.

Welther was allegedly selling counterfeit erectile helpers that he acquired from China and the feds found out.

He reportedly tried to trick them by having the parcels delivered to different locations but the faux-drugs, not even chemically similar to the actual drugs they were masquerading as, sent Welther to a long, hard day at ICE.

Eventually, he was federally charged with eight counts of counterfeit trafficking and could be imprisoned for 10 years and fined $2 million bucks.

Pretty steep considering Homeland Security speculates the man would have only made about $125,000 of his recent shipment.
