Senators announce agreement on imported drugs
A drive to make prescription drug imports legal and force lower prices with global competition picked up momentum Wednesday.

Cheapers Drugs from Northern Neighbors

Nine days after opening its doors for the first time, business is booming at Canada drug. In fact, from the time they hang the "open" sign at ten in the morning until the "close" sign takes it's place at five each night, workers say they can hardly keep up with the demand of people wanting to tap into the cheaper prescription pipeline from the North.
