Bipartisan, Bicameral Bill Seeks to Address Illegal Drug Sales on the Dark Web

In an article for the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy, Faegre Drinker Consulting director Elliot Vice discusses the Dark Web Interdiction Act of 2022, a new bipartisan bill that seeks to improve the investigative and enforcement abilities of law enforcement agencies when dealing with criminals selling controlled substances on the dark web.

Vice shares that the bill would increase the penalties for criminals caught selling illegal drugs on the dark web and strengthen the Joint Criminal Opioid and Darknet Enforcement task force.

He also notes how the bill complements other legislative efforts in Congress, such as the Domain Reform for Unlawful Drug Sellers Act. “While the prospects for both bills are currently uncertain, support is growing in Congress to find ways to prevent the sale of illegal and counterfeit drugs on the internet,” highlighted Vice.
