From the Duluth (Minn.) News Tribune:
More than 11,000 request forms for new drug import program
More than 11,000 people have requested forms to enroll in Illinois and Wisconsin's new drug importation program, a system that gives residents access to cheaper prescription drugs from Europe and Canada despite a federal ban on the imports.

The two states launched the I-SaveRx program Oct. 4, and Gov. Rod Blagojevich has been promoting it across Illinois.

During its first six days, the program's toll-free hot line received 2,892 calls, and the call center mailed out more than 1,000 enrollment forms, Blagojevich said Tuesday. He said enrollment forms had been downloaded from the I-SaveRx Web site 10,141 times.
