Norman J Clement, Aaron Howard, Lynn Michelle Clarke, Rick Fertil demand the return of our DEA Pharmacy Control Substance Registrations Immediately.
THE MINDSET OF ACCEPTANCE
THE DEA BIG LIE
In just the past 3 years or more Black-owned Pharmacies have been attacked and classified as “Public Health Threats” and their Control Substance Registration suspended. Many of these Black-owned Pharmacies have been in business for more than 10 years. These Black-owned pharmacies are not public health threats nor imminent dangers.
The DEA in each case presented no evidence of narcotics and control medications being sold without a physician signed prescription nor any evidence medications were being diverted.
Yet in each case, all these pharmacies had their certificate of registration suspended (supposedly) based on suspicion of diversion and ignoring alleged red flags in filling narcotic analgesic medications.
(Listen to Leroy Baylor from the Harlem Wisdom Table interview of Walter R. Clement Retired Detroit Police Officer, Master Scuba Diver, and Instructor in law enforcement.)
THE CULTURE OF DISTORTION
“WE MUST SHARE OUR EXPERIENCES AND KNOW OUR HISTORY”
These tribulations are no different from what our forbearers experienced, Predatory Policingthat enforces Regulatory Racism. Therefore, it is not a matter of what you’re doing right, it is about putting you in your place. A place of eternal servitude, despair, and the maintenance of generational subjectivity (we are but low-hanging fruit).
“TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION IS AN UN-DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLE, BRING DC INTO THE HOOD”
THE DESTRUCTION OF THE BLACK-OWNED PHARMACY
LINCOURT PHARMACY CLEARWATER, FLORIDA
There is absolutely no evidence of diversion not in Pronto, At Cost, Superior Drug Pharmacy, Lincourt Pharmacy what interpretation that corresponding responsibility act as a cop and results in withholding of medications without putting anything in writing.
Lincourt Pharmacy of Clearwater, Florida has been in business for nearly 40 years. They are a specialty pharmacy in compounding sterile and non-sterile products and we’re doing over $15 million per year with sales all over the world. Louis Lassiter, who is the pharmacist-owner states that “his business dropped dramatically when the DEA came around and began targeting and harassing his wholesalers.”
OAK HILL PHARMACY, OAK HILL WEST VIRGINIA
Oak Hill Home Town Pharmacy, Oak Hill, WV owner Martin Mnjoku in business 15 years, raided August 6, 2019 “an imminent danger to the public health or safety”
Despite prevailing in the Federal District Court, the DEA pushes on against scientists and true medical experts to harass and prosecute Martin Ndjou, owner of Oak Hill Pharmacy. Repeatedly, the DEA has been found to have abused its authority. The agency has a history of human rights abuses, lavish payments to confidential informants, and surveillance of Americans with no suspected connection to illegal drug activities.
OAK HILL PHARMACY PREVAILED IN FEDERAL DISTRICT COURT
GULF MED PHARMACY TARGETED AS IMMINENT DANGER TO PUBLIC SAFETY
Gulf Med Pharmacy, Cape Coral, Fl owner Ricardo Fertil in business 10 years, raided Nov 19, 2019, “an imminent danger to the public health or safety,”
“The US ‘War on Drugs has had a profound role in reinforcing racial hierarchies. Although Black Americans are no more likely than Whites to use illicit drugs, they are 6–10 times more likely to be incarcerated for drug offenses. Meanwhile, a very different system for responding to the drug use of Whites has emerged.”

AT COST PHARMACY TARGETED AS IMMINENT DANGER TO PUBLIC SAFETY
DEA TARGETING BLACK OWNED PHARMACY BUSINESSES IN FLORIDA
On January 7, 2020, owner Aaron Howard, PharmD, of At Cost Pharmacy, Fort Meyers, Florida, found himself surrounded by seven DEA agents ordering an Immediate Suspension of his Control Substance license and seizing his property. The order was signed by Acting DEA Chief Uttam DHilllion, who has in previous orders issued to other Black-owned pharmacies to be deemed “an imminent danger to public health and safety.”
DEA, in their written complaint against Pronto Pharmacy and At Cost Pharmacy of Fort Myers, begin by categorizing non-white pharmacies as “Red Flags.” The DEA algorithm includes distance travel, paying cash, and excessive dosage. Each patient is then profiled as an abuser and
a federal criminal statute is assigned to them, their physician, nurse, pharmacist, dentist, and any other healthcare provider involved in their care with a spirit of impunity.
At Cost Pharmacy, Ft. Meyers, owner Aaron Howard in business 10 years, raided January 7, 2020 “an imminent danger to the public health or safety”, (see below Order to Show Cause At Cost Pharmacy Ft. Meyers, Fl.)
This search warrant was decrepitude in that it failed to illustrate and support the rudimentary descriptions defining Probable Cause. The investigator wrote, “Application having been made, and probable cause as defined by 21 U.S.C. § 880(d)(1) having been shown by the affidavit of Diversion Investigator Norita N. Persaud, United States Drug Enforcement Administration, for an inspection of the controlled premises of Aarric, Inc., dba At Cost Rx, 16970 San Carlos Boulevard, Suite 110, Fort Myers, FL 33908, with DEA number FA2125640, it appears that said inspection is appropriate under 21 U.S.C. § 880”. ah_1072020_aarric_dea_dsa-2“ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE AT COST PHARMACY” 01/03/2020
The investigator agent clearly expressed his limited knowledge of probable cause as defined by 21 U.S.C. § 880(d)(1). Yet, he did not, within the search warrant, describe the place to be searched and the descriptive elements to support and clearly identify any elements of a crime which would provide a reasonable officer to conclude that probable cause exist.
ALL PRESCRIPTIONS WERE VALID
Pronto Pharmacy LLC, At Cost Pharmacy of Fort Myers, Fl, Gulf Med Pharmacy of Cape Coral, Florida, Oak Hill Pharmacy of Oak Hill, West Virginia to this date have neither violated nor broken any laws. All control medications in these pharmacies have been dispensed according to CSA guidelines, and all prescriptions filled by these pharmacies were legally written by licensed medical/dental practitioners.
