From (Mich.):
Seniors demand access to lower-cost drugs
Just in case the U.S. Senate, which is mulling a vote on legalizing drug imports, didn't get the message yet, hundreds of Michigan seniors rallied at the state's bridges to Canada, demanding access to cheaper drugs.

Monday's rallies at Detroit, Port Huron and Sault Ste. Marie are designed to pressure Congress to legalize an activity that the federal government has been loath to prosecute as public outrage over drug prices mounts: busloads of seniors getting their prescriptions filled in Canada, where prices are lower. The rallies were organized by Michigan AARP, the state's largest senior citizens group.
