Calpe was the location of a raid by police which uncovered over 150,000 fake Viagra pills, the biggest haul of dodgy Viagra tablets ever found in Spain. The police arrested five people in connection with “producing pharmaceuticals without any sanitary control”.

It is understood that the drugs were distributed via a courier company, after their customers purchased the “little blue pills’ via the internet. The “company” also distributed BZP (benzylpiperazine) powder, Xanax (anxiolytic) and Kamagra, whose effects are similar to those of Viagra, among other products.

Those detained were also producing a version of Botox, a potentially dangerous drug, as it works by poisoning the patient, so any variation in the substance could have serious consequences.
