Canada plans pharmacy marijuana project
Canada plans to make government-certified marijuana available in local pharmacies, a move that would make Canada the second country in the world after the Netherlands to allow the direct sale of medical marijuana.

Officials are organizing a pilot project in British Columbia, modeled on a year-old program in the Netherlands.

From the Metrowest Daily News (Mass.):
Canada drugs bill heads to Senate: Would create Web site of certified Canadian pharmacies
A bill that would allow the state to inform consumers how they can purchase prescription drugs from Canadian pharmacies at reduced prices is heading to the state Senate now that it has been endorsed by a key panel of lawmakers.

The legislation would direct Gov. Mitt Romney to seek the federal government's permission to create a state-run Web site listing certified pharmacies in Canada that sell prescription drugs over the Internet.
