AG Jim Hood says Google pulling videos on how to get drugs without prescription

Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood says Google appears to be removing online videos that give instructions on how to buy drugs without a prescription.
Hood threatened legal action against Google last week, saying the Internet giant wasn’t doing enough to stop sales without prescriptions and was even profiting by selling ads next to the YouTube videos. Google owns YouTube.

Digital Citizens Alliance, a Washington, D.C., group that has aligned with Hood on this issue, says that when it searches on YouTube for “buy tramadol without a prescription,” the number of hits for that painkiller have fallen from about 900 to about 460 in roughly the past week.
