Good thing they’re keeping us safe up on the north border:
Citing increased concerns about the quality of drugs entering the United States from Canada, federal authorities have stepped up seizures of the prescriptions and sent strongly worded legal warnings to consumers, including some in Massachusetts, who have ordered the discounted drugs.
…Salem-resident Nancy Popkin was among the consumers who recently received a letter. She has been ordering the osteoporosis treatment Fosamax from Canadian pharmacies for years and said she was surprised when she received a form letter in the mail from the Department of Homeland Security rather than her usual shipment of 12 tablets.
And here’s the original Globe article.
I’d like anyone to produce any evidence that the drugs from Canada are “dangerous”. They are “dangerous” to pharmaceutical companies’ bottom lines only. To say that the drugs themselves would be “riskier” than not taking them is a cruel insult to everyone’s intelligence.
The Dept. of Homeland Security has become the Department of Health Endangerment. “Dangerously Incompetent”? You think? Well hey, don’t forget dangerously corrupt and craven.
