From the Lakeland (FL) Ledger:
Canadian Drug Providers Meet
About 20 owners of Canadian prescription services based in Florida gathered Monday evening in Lakeland to consider a legal defense against the state.

The meeting came in response to 12 cease-and-desist orders issued June 16, when the Florida Department of Health ordered the prescription services to shut down immediately because they were performing unlicensed pharmaceutical activities.

"If we shut down, our customers won't know where to go," said Audrey Meadows, the owner of Discount Drugs of CanAmerica at 4120 U.S. 98 N., where the owners met last night. "They can't go back to the corner pharmacy, because they don't want to and they can't afford to."
