From the Providence (RI) Journal:
Mayor vows fight for Canadian drugs
A day after suggesting that the city begin saving money for all of its residents by buying prescription drugs in Canada, Mayor Rolland R. Grant threw down the gauntlet yesterday, saying he'd bring the case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court if state or federal officials try to block the effort.

Grant said that purchasing less expensive drugs from Canada is "the right thing to do," particularly when health-care costs are spiraling out of control, and that he doesn't believe assertions that bringing in lower-priced prescription drugs is illegal.

From the Palm Beach (FL) Post:
Canadian drug ban could drive you to drink
Millions of people do order drugs from Canada at a handsome savings without a hitch and without keeling over dead from bad drugs.

The FDA intercepts and confiscates maybe one in a thousand orders for the simple reason that it doesn't have the manpower to screen millions of drug orders a year coming in from Canada.
