From the Providence (RI) Journal:
State pharmacy board rejects rules for Canadian drug imports
A law that would make Rhode Island the first state in the nation to license Canadian pharmacies hit an expected bump in the road yesterday, when a state board rejected regulations to implement it.

But the new law appears likely to roll toward its January enactment anyway, as Rhode Island continues down its unique path in coping with a nationwide dilemma.

Responding to citizens' demands for lower-cost drugs from Canada, Illinois and Wisconsin are sponsoring efforts to help residents get Canadian drugs, and municipalities around the country are obtaining Canadian drugs for their employees.
