On Thursday, federal authorities charged FedEx with assisting illegal online pharmacies by delivering prescription drugs to customers without prescriptions.

The indictment filed in federal court in San Francisco alleges that from 2000-2010, FedEx Corp. conspired with two online pharmacies, shipping powerful drugs like Ambien, Valium and Xanax to customers without valid prescriptions

The Department of Justice announced the charges in Washington, D.C. and says it wants FedEx to forfeit $820 million that the company earned in these deliveries.
