From the Atlanta Journal Constitution:
Mont. Moves to Halt Canada Drugs by Mail
State regulators in Montana have filed suit against Rx Depot to close the Billings storefront of the mail-order company that arranges to bring discounted prescription medicines from Canada.

The Montana Board of Pharmacy filed suit last week in District Court in Helena seeking the depot's immediate closure. The business is violating a variety of state and federal laws designed to protect consumers, the lawsuit alleges.

From the Oxford (OH) Press:
Pharmacy Board official speaks against county plan
A segment of Butler County's new prescription drug program which provides an avenue for people to get discounted drugs from Canada has the executive director of the Ohio Pharmacy Board crying foul.

In a letter to Butler County Commission President Michael Fox, Ohio Pharmacy Board Executive Director William Winsley said the importation of prescription drugs from Canada violates state and federal laws.
