From the Minneapolis Star Tribune:
Modest start for state drug sites
Minnesota and Wisconsin, the first states offering Canadian drugs through state-sponsored Web sites, have generated about $545,000 in sales in the first five months -- a fraction of the cross-border business done by private and nonprofit Internet sites.

Together, residents of the two states have ordered about 4,500 prescriptions through the Internet programs this year.

In Minnesota, low-cost Canadian drugs worth about $387,000 have been purchased in five months through the state-sponsored Minnesota RxConnect program launched Jan. 30, and a companion program for state employees begun in February. Wisconsin's program had $158,000 in sales in three months.
