Miss. AG Hood Says He'll Subpoena Google On Drugs

Posted: Updated:
Jackson -

Mississippi's attorney general says he still considers Google's responses on its efforts to prevent illegal sales of online drugs insufficient and says he's sending subpoenas for company documents to further his investigation. Jim Hood urged fellow attorneys general from other states to do the same at a meeting in Boston Tuesday.
   
Hood, a Democrat, says the Mountain View, Calif.-based company hasn't adequately responded to requests by himself and the National Association of Attorneys General to discuss sites that sell drugs without prescriptions, as well as improperly link to copyrighted music, videos and other material.
   
Google, in comments posted Tuesday by Legal Director Adam Barea, says it's making it harder for "rogue" pharmacies to operate, but says it won't block search results except in a few instances such as child pornography.
