The rapid development of information technology has changed the perspective, mindset and even changed human life, including the way people do shopping. Nowadays, we are getting used to hear terms such as online shopping, e-commerce, and e-business that change the way people do business. Online buying and selling activities are carried out without any physical meeting of the producers, distributors, and consumers as buyers because the whole transaction is carried out using electronic media or the internet. One of the products that are widely offered online is medicinal products. Generally, consumers are interested in buying medical products online, i.e., drugs, herbals, cosmetics, etc. They are influenced by the advertisements made by manufacturers or distributors without knowing the ingredients and the particular functions of these medicines. The general public's lack of literacy about medication and therapy often makes them trapped in buying illegal drug products online. This paper seeks to explain the regulation and sale of drugs, including illegal drugs online, considering that during the Covid-19 pandemic, people are often afraid to travel and see doctors for fear of the coronavirus. The existence of large-scale social restrictions also increases those who are reluctant to go to the doctor and finally end up buying illegal drugs online without knowing the ingredients, functions, uses, or efficacy of the drugs because they do not follow the doctor's instructions.
