In 2014, FedEx faced drug-trafficking charges after a federal grand jury in San Francisco indicted it for conspiring to deliver prescription drugs for illegal Internet pharmacies.
“The indictment says FedEx knew for a decade that such pharmacies used their services…”
They apparently ignored nearly a decade of warnings from the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Food and Drug Administration and members of Congress… “FedEx knew that it was delivering drugs to dealers and addicts,” the Justice Department said in a press release.
Fast forward to today. After two years, FedEx and our government are headed to federal court. I personally think this is a shakedown, similar to the 2013 case involving UPS. They avoided a court fight, choosing instead to settle, paying the feds some $40 million.
Some however, would say that our government is trying to help us, by cracking down on the evil drug trade – and that’s a good thing, right?
But what about human trafficking? Seems to me this is worse than even drugs. Cartels based in Mexico shuttle illegals into America under the radar and drop them off in various places across the country.
