This topic has been hashed over so much I feel kind of guilty, BUT, here is a topical situation that may ease some concern. A week or so ago, I was at the Pharmacy, the lady in front of me was purchasing a large bag of medication for a friend, she asked the Pharmacist if it was o.k to Fed. Ex her friends medication, the Pharmacist said, "Medications are Fed-Ex'd as a matter of routine"...thus, it is NOT all internet medication. Also, when I was "Medically Indigent" the County Hospital, (over 100 miles from me) sent my Meds. each Mo. VIA UPS, I got to know the guy, (nice Latino) he would holler out the window, "YOU GOTTA THE MEDICINE DAVE!!!" (I am in the country so no biggie)
So, RELAX folks!!!

When ordering domestically Fedex and UPS are very safe

I agree, Fed Ex one time opened my package though! Back in the day when I was ordering alprazolam (before I got a precription) and all I got was an empty bottle. I guess some FedEx guy/gal was pretty "relaxed" after taking my meds!

Fedex and UPS are cooperating with authorities on internet medicine shipping. From what I gather the other is not.

Yes, this has been talked about a lot in the past SA..
But actually if memory in my old age serves me correct..a while back (I bet PB remembers) there was an article posted somewhere about an arrest done by a..sheriff maybe??
Anyway..what happened was there were pictures showing a man in LE that was dressed up in a DHL uniform (think he may have borrowed the uniform and truck) making deliveries..

Now I have to see if I can find it..

I know what you are referring. I read, like you let me go find it, that FED & UPS have been contacted and are working with the man. There was people actually waiting in line, running after those those trucks for their meds. From what I remember DHL decided not to cooperate. I think that article was to show that they are aware of all the meds being shipped. Since Dhl didn't cooperate why not use their uniform so everyone will think they are cooperating. JMHO.
