From the Charlotte (NC) Observer:
Canadian drugs save county cash
Caldwell County's Canadian drug program is on track to save the county about 26 percent of its annual prescription drug bill, officials said last week.

About 10 percent of the county's workforce of 525 has signed up to receive prescription medications from Canadian pharmacies, said Human Resources Director David Hill.

From the Ironton (OH) Tribune:
Importing medication topic of debate
To import or not to import medicines? That is the legal question.

Importation of prescription drugs has become a hot topic this election year, but the debate over the legality of the issue has now hit a little closer to home.

Two local men opened Canadian Med Connection, 509 State St., Proctorville, to help provide people with a choice for cheaper prescription medicines. However, pharmacists and governmental agencies remain adamant that these types of businesses are operating illegally.
