INDICE DE GALERIAS
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Members of the Hmong (mung') community are seeking answers following a recent raid on a St. Paul marketplace that resulted in the confiscation of prescription drugs and painkillers.
A Minnesota Public Radio report (http://bit.ly/1522Yok ) quotes Hmong vendors as saying they're not sure what they did wrong. They're worried that Minnesotans will think Hmongtown Marketplace is unsafe.
But the Ramsey County sheriff's office says deputies observed illegal practices including the sale of improperly labeled drugs. It says vendors need to understand the law.
The raid occurred last month. Agents confiscated hundreds of pounds of unmarked or mismarked prescription medication, and said some vendors may yet be arrested.
Vendor Kia Lee says the law doesn't make sense to her. She says if she can buy something from a supplier she should be able to sell it.
