From the Sacramento Bee:
Illinois takes on drug ban
The governor of Illinois initiated a lawsuit against the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Thursday, seeking a class-action ruling to legalize Canadian drug purchases by states, cities and individuals.

The case, closely watched in California, asserts that the federal ban on the importation of prescription drugs violates patients' constitutional right to privacy by restricting consumers' ability to make personal decisions about where they buy medications.
