From the Helena (MT) Independent Record:
Canadian connection
A local man who ran an Rx Depot franchise for a few months last summer until the company was shut down by a federal judge, is again helping local residents obtain cheaper prescription drugs from Canada.

Tom Kennedy opened Canadian Connection in April and has helped about 100 clients fill their prescriptions at lower prices north of the border.

For now, state and federal officials seem to be leaving businesses like Kennedy's alone as Congress contemplates what to do. At least two bills relating to drug prices are under consideration in the U.S. Senate. One would legalize the safe importation of prescription drugs from other countries, beginning with Canada. Drug manufacturers are urging Congress to back drug discount cards.
