Criminals make billions of dollars creating and selling counterfeit drugs around the world, and those products make their way into the United States. They duplicate the exact packaging, look and taste of the real thing. They can be difficult to detect, but detecting them is important. Counterfeit drugs can be a death sentence for the patients who end up taking them. Fake drugs deny patients treatment that can alleviate suffering and save lives, promote drug resistant strains of disease and may cause dangerous or deadly reactions to undeclared drug ingredients.
Comprised of more than 45 non-profit organizations, The Partnership for Safe Medicines (PSM) is a public health group committed to the safety of prescription drugs and protecting consumers against counterfeit, substandard or otherwise unsafe medicines.
PSM follows a set of principles to support quality assurance programs and establish a drug distribution system that is without compromise. It is our hope that through these guidelines we can reduce the number of counterfeit drugs that defraud patients and deny them therapies that can alleviate suffering and save lives. Our principles include:
- Unifying the fight against counterfeit drugs
- Securing and protecting the pharmaceutical supply chain
- Regulation of online sellers
PSM works with patient advocacy groups and consumer groups to raise awareness of counterfeit drugs within the United States and to teach patients and medical professionals how to buy medication safely and affordably without risking their lives by dealing with unlicensed, dangerous counterfeit medication sellers.

On April 23, 2021, in a small town in Bardstown, Kentucky. My 24-year-old son Nick was killed by 1/2 a counterfeit fentanyl Percocet. HALF of an ILLICIT COUNTERFEIT PERCOCET took Nick's life. Officially called accidental drug overdose by the state of KENTUCKY.. BUT my son Nick did NOT overdose he was poisoned to death by that half a pill. All alone and utterly clueless that would be his last act on earth. No warning, no knowledge he was about to consume fentanyl, no battle, and no choice. Nick never battled a substance use disorder but he is still DEAD. Nick did NOT OVERDOSE he was POISONED TO DEATH. Nick didn't choose Fentanyl, he was murdered, and the crime is called Drug-Induced Homicide. I could not save Nick from an unknown illicitly counterfeit pill because I didn't know they existed. Nick didn't know they existed. Nick doesn't get a chance or a choice... Nick is a beloved person and his life will be forever missed. Nick matters, and all those killed by illicit Fentanyl matter... It's not okay, you should be here...

Cam made an incredibly poor choice to purchase a pill off of social media. An autopsy report would prove that ONE PILL contained a lethal dose of fentanyl. Cameron didn't get a chance to learn from his mistake. He died from it.
Cam had no idea that the ONE pill he took contained anything in it that would end his life.
