From the Berkshire (MA) Eagle:
Business plan brings national debate home
Kurt Bricault's plan to open an Internet business that allows access to lower-cost Canadian prescription drugs and the Planning Board's decision whether to issue a permit for the business has delivered a nationally growing controversy to the city's doorstep.

Bricault asserts that his proposed opening of a Discount Drugs of Canada affiliate at 85 Main St. is legal. According to Bricault, his proposal is permitted under Federal Communications Commission regulations involving access to information on the Internet. Planning Board members have expressed concerns about the legality of the venture, and last Monday postponed a decision on Bricault's special permit application until January.
