From the Boston Herald:
Vt. will sue over drugs: FDA nixes state's request to buy low-cost medicine from Canada
Vermont leaders plan to pave the way for buying cheaper drugs from Canada by suing federal regulators who refuse to allow the state to set up such a program.

The lawsuit, which officials plan to file this week, charges that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration wrongfully denied a waiver to Vermont that would have allowed the state to legally buy drugs.

```The claims on which they've based this denial are, in our view, unsubstantiated and we have no choice but to pursue any and all legal remedies available,'' said Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas.
