GP jailed for selling $550k worth of cough medicine

A Singapore-based GP has been jailed for two years and fined $120,000 for selling tens of thousands of bottles of cough mixture to drug addicts.

Over a period of 15 months, Dr Tan Gek Young, 61, made more than $550,000 from the sale of 25,765 bottles of cough mixture, a Singapore court heard this week.

This amounted over 2,300 litres of cough mixture - working out to be an average of 57 bottles of the standard 90ml
