From The Boston Channel:
Local Storefront Offering Canadian Drugs To Customers
With the cost of prescription drugs climbing, more people are looking to Canada to find cheaper name-brand medications, and a local storefront is bringing those savings to their customers.

NewsCenter 5's Janet Wu reported that a Rehoboth store has begun selling prescriptions from a Canadian pharmacy. While the federal government said these businesses are illegal, they are apparently doing little to stop them.

From Suffolk (NY) Life:
Gov't Examines Lower Drug Costs
As U.S. prescription prices continue to rise, Suffolk County is looking for ways to cut the costs for county employees that would elicit significant savings all around.

Congressman Steve Israel (D-Hauppauge) and County Executive-elect Steve Levy announced last Tuesday that they are forming a committee to study the feasibility and possible savings through the purchase of prescription drugs from Canada.
