From the Boston Globe:
Mayor OK's buying drugs from Canada
Mayor David B. Cohen has announced his support for a plan to import prescription drugs from Canada.

The mayor estimated that the city would save $100,000 the first year and $300,000 the second. For the program to move forward, the city must gain approval from unions, which appears likely because it would be voluntary; several union representatives already have expressed their support.

Cohen said he did not know when the new program would go into effect. ''We want to implement it sooner rather than later."
