MHRA operation seizes 20,000 unlicensed sex drugs

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency announced that £50,000 worth of unlicensed sex drugs have been seized in Woking as part of Operation Jaipur
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) announced that £50,000 worth of unlicensed sex drugs have been seized in Woking as part of Operation Jaipur.

Enforcement officers from the MHRA, assisted by Thames Valley Police, took possession of approximately 20,000 units of the unlicensed sex medicines, which included Kamagra tablets and jellies used for male impotence. The drug haul was a direct result of the early morning operation that saw officers search three addresses in the Woking and Bracknell area.

Mick Deats, group manager of enforcement at the MHRA, said the agency is committed to protecting public health and that it is imperative that medicines are licensed correctly.

"The type of medicines we seized cannot be guaranteed to be safe because they have not been assessed for safety, quality and efficacy," said Deats. "At best these medicines could be a waste of money, at worst they could be severely detrimental to your health."
