From KTLA-TV (CA):
O.C. to Study Canada Drugs
An Orange County supervisor wants to consider allowing county employees to buy prescription drugs from Canada — a practice prohibited by federal law — to reduce healthcare costs.

Supervisor Chuck Smith said he will ask the board to study the potential cost savings and legal liability of allowing county workers to defy the Food and Drug Administration and buy drugs from Canada.

Many name-brand prescription drugs are cheaper in Canada because of its federal government's price restrictions.
