Federal authorities raid Internet pharmacy operator CanadaDrugs.com

Federal authorities in Canada last week raided the Winnipeg headquarters of CanadaDrugs.com but declined to say what prompted the raid, citing a court-ordered confidentiality order, the Winnipeg Sun reports. The newspaper notes that the FDA for years has pursued the online pharmacy company and other companies tied to Kris Thorkelson for selling drugs, some of which have turned out to be fakes. In 2012, some of his companies were tied to the sale of two batches of counterfeit Avastin, Roche's ($RHHBY) colon cancer drug, as well as some counterfeit Adderall and Botox. Story | More
