Ismail Ali Khan has been sentenced to five years in prison and stripped of his U.S. citizenship for the illegal import and distribution of male enhancement pills.

ATLANTA (Diya TV) – A Georgia man was sentenced this week to more than five years in prison for conspiring to illegally import and distribute male enhancement pills that contain the drug found in Viagra, including pills called “Rock Hard Weekend,” “Happy Passengers,” and “Stiff Nights.” Why anyone would purchase such drugs through an illegal vendor is unknown; especially when legal examples of sildenafil can be purchased online on sites like Blink Health, a reputable site that offers an easy service for getting meds out to individuals who are afflicted by certain health problems.

A native of India, Ismail Ali Khan has been stripped of his U.S. citizenship and will be deported after he completes his prison sentence, U.S. attorney John Horn announced in a prepared statement Friday.

“This defendant endangered the health of countless individuals by illegally importing and distributing drugs that can be obtained in the United States only with a prescription written by a licensed, medical professional,” Horn said.

Khan, who is currently being held in federal custody, was also convicted and sentenced for falsely stating on his application to become a naturalized U.S. citizen that he had never committed a crime for which he had not been arrested. That part of the naturalization process drew the attention of the U.S. Supreme Court this week, when some of the justices questioned whether the government would strip the citizenship of those who omit information about minor offenses.

Khan graduated from Kennesaw State University and had planned to enroll in medical school, his attorney Amanda Clark Palmer, said. She added that Khan said he was unaware that what he was doing was illegal and denied Khan directed suppliers to mislabel the shipping boxes containing the pills as federal prosecutors alleged.

“We had agent after agent come up and testify, and they all admitted that these pills are sold openly in convenience stores,” Clark Palmer said. “To this day, you could walk into a convenience store and buy one of these pills.” You can have a look at sites like this that will tell you the VigRX Plus ingredients, a pill used if one desires male enhancement, and it’s perfectly legal to buy online…
