From the Detroit News:
Cities buy Canadian drugs, cut costs
For 30 years, Roger Landry has been rounding up criminals in this city near the Connecticut border. But in the eyes of federal regulators, Officer Landry is himself a lawbreaker.

He and his wife have made out handsomely from their illegal activity, pocketing an extra $1,000 this year. But rather than punish the pair, city officials are cheering them on. Thanks to the Landrys and 3,200 other city workers who have opted to order their prescription drugs from a licensed Canadian pharmacy, deficit-plagued Springfield has saved $2.5 million in the year since it became the first city in the nation to sponsor such a program.
