From the Portsmouth (NH) Herald:
Critics wary of Canadian drugs
The Food and Drug Administration on Friday continued to rebut Gov. Craig Benson’s claims that prescription drugs he imported from Canada are just as safe as American versions.

Benson, who wants the federal government to give New Hampshire a waiver to order drugs from Canada for Medicaid patients and state prisoners, recently filled prescriptions for six common medications through and at two New Hampshire pharmacies.

From the Miami Herald:
Web drug sales to U.S. double
Canada's Internet pharmacies more than doubled sales to U.S. customers in 2003 to C$825 million ($631 million), threatening Canada's drug supply, according to an industry group's study.
