From the Newton (Mass.) Tab:
City eyes cheap Canadian drugs
Propelled by evidence of substantial savings in one local city, Newton officials are investigating a health insurance program that would allow city employees to purchase Canadian drugs, potentially saving taxpayers $2.4 million a year.

Last summer, Springfield successfully launched a similar program. Newton is now one of several state municipalities, including Boston and Cambridge, to consider making Canadian prescription drugs available to municipal employees, even though it has been a source of legal controversy.
