Utah's emergence as the home for online pharmacies stems from a law that was unclear on whether online pharmacies should be allowed. After intense negotiations, the Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing reached a consent agreement in 2002 allowing KwikMed to prescribe certain "lifestyle drugs" online -- things like erectile dysfunction treatment, and hair restoration or smoking cessation drugs -- and have them delivered to customers' homes.

That includes the drugs Chantix, which the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned last April may have serious side effects on a patient's mental health, including depression and potentially suicide.
