From the Globe and Mail:
Few Americans buying drugs on-line
Only 4 per cent of Americans have ever used the Internet to buy prescription drugs — and even fewer do so through foreign pharmacies — despite websites maintained by a handful of states to help Americans import medicines more cheaply from Canada, a new study finds.

A majority — 62 per cent — believe drugs bought on-line are less safe than those purchased from a local pharmacy, accepting the federal government's stated concerns in opposing drug imports, the Pew Internet and American Life Project said in a report Sunday.
