Who would have thought?

Remember when Dubya was running for re-selection and promised they wouldn’t do this? Well, he lied. I know - I was as shocked as you are.
About 13,000 packages of prescription drugs — most ordered by U.S. seniors from licensed Canadian pharmacies — have been held up by U.S. Customs and Border Protection since November, according to figures released Wednesday by a Florida senator.

The largest number of packages, more than 4,000, have been stopped at the international mail center near Los Angeles International Airport, according to statistics that the office of Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) said it had obtained from a customs administrator. Drugs also were seized at centers in Chicago, Miami and New York.

The customs crackdown in effect reverses a long-standing policy of the Food and Drug Administration to allow individuals to receive medications for personal use from reputable Canadian pharmacies, even though it is illegal to order drugs from abroad.
