Is this same site which keeps sending out spam mails promising cheap drugs

Thanks for your post. There is a big difference between legitimate, licensed Canadian pharmacies and those simply representing themselves to be the real thing…

I founded TheCanadianPharmacy in Winnipeg, Canada 12 years ago. This is the real thing. TCP does not send out spam eMail messages or fill orders for Rx products

without a valid Rx.
