Despite U.S. Ban, Drug Import Programs Proliferate
A new joint program in Illinois and Wisconsin to help residents buy cheaper prescription drugs from Canada and Europe is the latest challenge to the United States' ban on drug importation.

A growing number of states and municipalities are openly defying the federal law. Minnesota, the first state to facilitate cross-boarder drug imports, launched a Web site in January providing residents with information on how to buy drugs from Canada. Since then, North Dakota and New Hampshire have joined the fray, while nearly a dozen other states have proposed import.
