Federal Government Seeks Injunction to Close Rx Depot Stores

The federal government has filed suit against a chain of stores where people, including East Texans, could buy prescription drugs from Canada. The Feds are trying to close 85 stores run by RX Depot, including one in Tyler, saying the importation of drugs poses "significant risks to public health."

Many people, especially seniors, have used RX Depot to save money on drugs, because prices for prescriptions are much lower in Canada. A ruling on the suit should be made in a few weeks.
