Drastic changes expected for Internet pharmacies
Five years ago, Daren Jorgenson was in the vanguard of the Internet pharmacy industry, well on his way to making millions by selling cheaper Canadian prescription drugs to uninsured Americans.

But Jorgenson says he has spent the last 21/2 years carefully preparing for the "new era" he always knew would come.

Jorgenson, who opened one of the country's first Internet pharmacies in 1999, believes that time is now and the industry in its current form will eventually die in Canada, undone by increasing pressure from Ottawa and pharmacy and medical watchdogs.
