Taiwan takes on underground radio

Government campaign aims to eliminate advertising for fake and harmful drugs.

    Taiwan's government says it is making big gains against criminal operators of underground radio stations.

    Over the past three months, the office of the prime minister has been personally overseeing a crackdown on advertisements for fake and harmful drugs.

    So widespread is the problem and so good the marketing that the government has made the issue a top public-health priority.
