From the Indianapolis Star:
State won't bless drug imports
With the click of a computer mouse, visitors to government Web sites in four states can fill orders for prescription drugs from private pharmacies in Canada.

It's a controversial Internet option that won't be offered by Indiana anytime soon.

Neither Gov. Joe Kernan nor his Republican challenger Mitch Daniels plans to try to put the state's stamp of approval on north-of-the-border drug buys.

And even if state legislators consider such a service, they would face potent opposition from drugmaker Eli Lilly and Co., Central Indiana's largest private employer.
