From USA Today:
Foreign drugs meet a need that U.S. has ignored (Editorial)
The willingness of so many individuals — and last month, even the Springfield, Mass., municipal government — to defy a federal law against buying foreign drugs dramatizes the growing rebellion over a system that forces U.S. consumers to pay the highest drug prices in the world.

From the Boston Herald:
Drug info proposal faces high hurdles: Feds, litigation may block path to Canada
If consumers are forced to look outside of the country to buy drugs, the state should at least be able to guide them, say proponents of the plan led by state Sen. Jarrett T. Barrios (D-Cambridge).

``It's only fair that these residents be provided the best information possible as to how they can save money and save money safely,'' Barrios said.
