CANADIAN DRUG PROVIDERS MEET TO RESPOND TO GOVT CEASE AND DESIST-Andrew Stelzer06/29/04
There are hundreds of Canadian Drug Provider business across the United States; these stores do not keep any drugs on site, instead they will fax prescription orders to Canadian pharmacies, which sell prescriptions at a much lower price. Florida has a large population of senior citizens, because of this, there are a lot of Canadian drug providers located in Florida. Last week, the Florida Department of health sent a letter to 12 of these businesses, with a cease and desist order, warning them that their business is illegal and they must close down. In response, Owners of 20 Canadian drug providers met in Lakeland last night, to begin the creation of a coalition or committee which can support each other to stay in business through what they see as illegal attacks by the government, and so they can continue to offer medications to Floridians at reasonable prices. WMNF spoke to George Donnelly, who owns Canada Drugs of Spring Hill; He serves about 2000 customers. He says the meeting, which brought together Canadian drug provider business owners from at least 6 counties, was the beginning of a long and important process.
