From The (Columbia, SC) State:
Mayor's Web link to Canada drug outlets sparks debate
Two years ago, Northeast Richland retiree Richard Astrella received his order of Coumadin — a heart medication — in the mail and looked it over.

The little round pill looked just like what he previously had bought from a local pharmacy, but it was shipped to his house from Canada, and it was $30 cheaper for a 90-day supply.

Astrella, 72, has been buying most of his medication — Pravachol, Diovan, Altace and Coumadin — from Canadian pharmacies for two years, saving a combined $275 on the orders. He says he has had no problems with them.
