Social media giant Meta under investigation for alleged drug sales on its platforms

Tech giant Meta, along with its social media subsidiaries Facebook and Instagram, is currently under investigation for their alleged role in facilitating drug sales on their platforms. Federal authorities are looking into whether Meta is profiting from these illegal transactions, sparking concerns about the company’s responsibility in regulating content on their platforms.

Investigators in Virginia have requested company records from Meta to determine the extent of drug content and illicit drug sales on Facebook and Instagram. Meta has stated that the sale of illicit drugs goes against their policies and they actively work to find and remove such content from their services. The tech giant also collaborates with law enforcement to combat the sale and distribution of illicit drugs online.

In a recent announcement, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken revealed a collaborative campaign between the State Department and social media companies, including Meta, to combat online drug trafficking. Meta’s President of Global Affairs, Nick Clegg, has highlighted their partnership with the State Department and UNODC to disrupt synthetic drug activity online.

The Food and Drug Administration has also been contacted for comment on this ongoing investigation by Fox Business. This investigation sheds light on the persistent issue of illegal activity on social media platforms and the concerted efforts being made to combat drug sales online. Stay tuned for updates on this developing story on ‘The News Teller’.
