"They are really taking the place of traditional drug traffickers," INCB President Hamid Ghodse said at a news conference ahead of the report's release.
"Billions of (doses of) controlled substances -- some of them highly potent drugs such as oxycodone, which is equivalent to morphine, and fentanyl, which is many times stronger than morphine -- are sold by unlicensed Internet pharmacies," he added.
