From the Hartford (CT) Courant:
Prescription Measure Backed
Sanders said he thinks it's absurd that in a global economy that imports everything from everywhere, the U.S. can't buy medicine outside its borders. On this legislation for reducing drug costs, he promised, "We're going to keep the pressure on."

From the Houston Chronicle:
Drug company talks with Canada on Serzone
Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. today said it is discussing the safety of its antidepressant Serzone with Canadian regulators, but declined to say whether it is on the verge of pulling the medicine from Canadian drugstores.

Due to liver failure among some patients taking the drug, Bristol-Myers has already stopped selling Serzone in Europe -- leaving Canada, the United States and Australia as its only remaining major markets.
