The movie focuses on the problem of expensive medicine for leukemia patients. The movie is adapted from the real event. Although Cheng Yong, played by Xu Zheng, sells medicine to save people, he is still sentenced. In reality, Cheng Yong's character is Lu Yong, and many friends are Lu Yong Let's see if we are sentenced.
In fact, the inspiration for the film comes from the 2015 blockbuster case of Lu Yong. The protagonist of the film was sentenced to five years for selling drugs on behalf of others. Many viewers contacted Lu Yong about the case and wondered why the real life 'drug Xia' was exempt from the sentence. Today (July 6), Hunan prosecutors do not prosecute the inside story of "Yao Shen" through micro public prosecution. According to his public decision, Lu Yong's purchase and helping others to purchase the imported anti-cancer drugs without approval violates the drug administration law, but his act is not a sales act and does not constitute the crime of selling fake drugs.

"I'm not the God of medicine", directed by wenmuye, supervised by Ning Hao, supervised and starred by Xu Zheng, will be released nationwide on July 6. The film is inspired by the "drug man" Lu Yong event in 2015, on which a certain literary adaptation has been made. In the movie, Cheng Yong, played by Xu Zheng, is a male health care product vendor who can't pay the rent. By chance, Cheng Yong becomes the exclusive agent of generic drugs in India, thus reaping high profits and being given the title of "drug God". However, after contacting the white blood patients, Cheng Yong's original intention of "pursuing profits for the greater" gradually turned into a kind heart of compassion for the heaven and the people. Various contradictions such as the survival plight of patients, the moral plight of drug traffickers, the legal plight of police, and the commercial plight of pharmaceutical companies appeared in the film, which is thought-provoking.
With the movie's popularity, the real story of Lu Yong, the prototype of the movie, has attracted more attention. It is understood that in reality, Lu Yongyuan is the boss of a textile export enterprise in Wuxi. In 2002, he was found to have chronic myeloid leukemia. At that time, the doctor prescribed him a special medicine - the "Gleevec" produced by Novartis, Switzerland, a box a month, RMB 23500, which could not be included in the medical insurance. The two-year period of medication nearly emptied his family. In 2004, Lu Yong stumbled upon an Indian generic drug, Gleevec, which had similar efficacy but sold for only 4000 yuan a box.
Lu Yong started taking the generic drug himself, and after finding it to be effective, he shared it with his patients. However, due to the trouble in overseas remittance procedures, in order to facilitate everyone's purchase of drugs, Lu Yong purchased three bank debit cards at a price of 500 yuan per set through Taobao, which solved the problem of "inconvenient account" between him and Indian companies. Cheap generic drugs are the hope of patients. Lu Yong is also called "drug man" by patients.
But objectively speaking, drugs without approval and legal channels in China will be identified as "fake drugs" by drug regulatory authorities. On July 21, 2014, Lu Yong was indicted by Yuanjiang municipal procuratorate on suspicion of 'crime of hindering credit card management' and 'crime of selling fake drugs'. After investigation, the procuratorate decided not to prosecute Lu Yong.
However, in the movie drug God, Xu Zheng's hero was finally sentenced to five years' imprisonment, and many people contacted the case of real drug man, wondering why Lu Yong was exempt from the sentence. In fact, the reason why the man in the movie was sentenced to five years is that after the adaptation of literature, the protagonist did have a 'profit-making purpose' at the beginning of selling drugs. In reality, Lu Yong helps others from the beginning to the end, so he does not sue. Today (July 6), Hunan prosecutors also do not prosecute the "drug God" through the official micro public prosecution. According to his public letter of decision, Lu Yong's purchase and helping others to purchase the imported anti-cancer drugs without approval violates the drug administration law, but his act is not a sales act and does not constitute the crime of selling fake drugs. It is illegal for Lu Yong to purchase and use cards, but the circumstances are obviously minor and the harm is not serious, so it is not considered as a crime. According to the law, Lu Yong will not be prosecuted.
