Canadian Pharmacy Storefronts Operating in Florida

The USDA’s Office of Criminal Investigations raided 9 storefronts in Florida in early December that helped customers, mostly senior citizens, purchase prescription drugs from unlicensed online sources. Search warrants allowed agents to access computers, paperwork about foreign drugs sales and any drugs.

Although none of the stores were closed, FDA-OCI warned store owners that importing drugs from foreign countries is illegal and that helping to “administer” such medicines puts them in danger of being fined or receiving a jail sentence.
