A couple of weeks ago we received a letter from Darcy O'Neil, asking us to publish his story about a local London pharmacy's sale of unauthorized prescription drugs to people who did not know they were receiving them. He does not believe the public's interest is being served by the efforts of existing regulatory bodies to address the situation.
On April 14, 2004 I presented the following story to the London Free Press. To date they have elected not to publish it, even though it concerns serious issues with the publics health. The only stated reason for not publishing is that their lawyers keep requesting revisions, but they are looking for a way to publish the story. Basically, their lawyers are concerned about potential legal threats if they publish the story.
