White House, FDA blasted for blocking prescription drug imports from Canada
U.S. regulators should support imports of cheaper prescription medicines from Canada and investigate attempts by the drug industry to limit supplies north of the border, a Capitol Hill summit on the issue was told Tuesday.

Purported safety concerns are no excuse for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's refusal to participate in state pilot projects to buy drugs in Canada for their workers and retirees, a number of governors and federal legislators said, adding that Canadian pharmacies can be inspected.
