Viagra: Top Counterfeit Medication in the EU

From The Economist:

viagra“Custom seizures of counterfeit goods rose by 17% in the EU last year, according to the European Commission… Cigarettes and clothing accounted for more than half the sham gear seized. China was the source of almost 60% of dodgy goods. Switzerland and India account for three-quarters of the trade in fake drugs, which rose by 51% last year. Treatments for erectile dysfunction—phoney Viagra pills—were the most common counterfeit medicines.

Of all medications, why Viagra?
