From the Lakeland (FL) Ledger:
Stop Scaring Florida's Seniors
Florida's many seniors who have turned to ordering drugs from Canada need to be aware of three things: 1. If a spokesman says something often enough, even if it's not true, many people will think it's true.

Example: Last week, a spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Health warned about buying drugs from foreign countries or over the Internet.

"It is the equivalent of selling drugs out of the trunk of a car," she said. "If you're utilizing services of an unlicensed practitioner, you don't have anybody you can turn to, nobody in your court, no assurance, no monitoring and no recourse . . . if something goes wrong."
