From the Sacramento Bee:
Canadian drug vendor will open store in capital
A Canadian company that helps U.S. patients buy drugs from a Manitoba pharmacy will open a storefront in Sacramento early next month, defying federal law and fueling a heated debate in California about foreign drug imports.

Northcare Drugs is not a pharmacy and its local employees will not touch a single pill. The store to be located at 2730 Arden Way will consist of little more than a computer, a phone, a fax machine and a couple of customer service representatives who help patients send prescription orders to PolarMeds, a pharmacy licensed in Manitoba to export drugs.
