US Soccer Star in Canadian Drug Sting

How could
I resist a story that combines Soccer, Drugs, Legal Stuff, a Father/Son
small business venture, and whatever Joe-Max is up to in that strange

The government took another shot yesterday in its bid to curb the import
of Canadian pharmaceuticals, this time aiming at Joe-Max Moore, the all-time
scoring leader for the New England Revolution.

The soccer player, 32, who lives in Braintree during the season and
in Florida in the winter, and his father, Carl Moore, of Tulsa, Okla.,
are the principals of a year-old company called RxDepot Inc., a business
which runs 85 "storefronts" coast-to-coast where Americans
can order low-cost prescription drugs from Canadian pharmacies.

In the Moores’ case, Carl Moore said yesterday, RxDepot gets 10 percent
of all orders placed with the company’s roster of Canadian pharmacies.
He estimated revenues at $20,000 a day, on gross daily sales of $200,000
spread across all 85 US storefronts.

Sounds like a pretty sweet business, so far. Turns out the Feds ran a
sting, ordered 60 Serzone and received 99 pills of a Canadian-approved
equivalent called Apo-Nefazadone, thus the suit.
