From the Manitowoc (Wisc.) Herald Times:
Cheaper Canadian drugs in demand
The demand for cheaper prescription drugs is everywhere and people are turning north for an answer.

An estimated 1.5 million U.S. residents rely on Canadian mail-order pharmacies for discounts on prescription drugs.

On Wednesday, the U.S. Senate got in on the issue by unveiling a bipartisan bill that would make it an illegal restraint of trade for pharmaceutical companies to limit supplies as a way of undercutting sales from Canada to the U.S.

From the Milwaukee Freeman Newspapers:
Drug wars
It's a tough choice: Prescription medication or food.
And as the cost of medication continues to soar and health insurance coverage is nipped back, it's one more people people may be forced to make.

But should people become forced to decide? Dewayne Stiefvater, a West Bend resident who is involved in the local chapter of American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), says there has to be another alternative.
