From the Cape Cod (Mass.) Times:
Cape towns weigh Canadian Rx
A joint Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard health group may be the first multi-municipality organization in the state to foray into the Canadian prescription drug market.

It's a move proponents say would save money for thousands of people covered under its members' health plans, as well as for taxpayers.

The steering committee of the Cape Cod Municipal Health Group, which comprises 51 towns, school departments, transit authorities and water and fire districts in Barnstable and Dukes counties, will interview Canadian firms over the next few months to see if the idea is feasible, said Falmouth Town Administrator Robert Whritenour, chairman of the municipal health consortium.
