From the San Jose Mercury News:
Drug bills are threatened with veto
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's administration threatened late Thursday that he would veto four bills designed to help Californians buy cheaper prescription drugs from Canada unless the measures are amended.

The signal was the administration's first public stance on the populist measures, which have pitted doctors, labor interests and senior citizens against business groups and pharmacists, who are among the governor's top backers.

From the Henderson (KY) Gleaner:
Rhode Island moves ahead on Canadian prescriptions
Rhode Island, acting under a first-in-the-nation state law, is preparing to license Canadian pharmacies to sell prescription drugs.

Rhode Island's new law is the only one in the country that requires the licensing of Canadian pharmacies in the same way mail-order pharmacies located in the United States are licensed.
