From the Providence (RI) Journal:
A go slow approach on drug plan
A top state health official said yesterday that he expects court action will likely prevent the state from licensing Canadian pharmacies to sell prescription medications to Rhode Island residents.

Because of that, said Donald C. Williams, head of health services regulation, the Department of Health has taken a bare-minimum approach to writing the regulations required to put the recently passed state law into action.

"I don't want the Department of Health to invest its limited resources -- extremely limited resources -- on a wild goose chase," Williams told an invited gathering of pharmacists, trade group representatives, activists for the elderly and others at a meeting yesterday morning.
