Questioning Questionnaire Medicine ...

A former Colorado physician is being charged for practicing medicine in California without a license for prescribing generic Prozac to a college student over the internet. The student, who later committed suicide, completed a questionnaire in which he stated he needed to take the medicine to treat " attention deficit disorder in relation to depression." 
The student ordered the pills from an India-based company ( The order was processed in Texas. The 90 pills were shipped from Mississippi. The Fort Collins-based doctor (who was licensed in Colorado at the time)  never saw or spoke with the patient. 

The parents of the deceased are suing all involved except the India-based company.
