From the Providence (RI) Journal:
Health Dept. official: Canadian pharmacy licensing law may end up in court
A senior official at the state Department of Health said today it is "highly unlikely" the department will be able to license Canadian pharmacies to sell prescription drugs in Rhode Island by the Jan. 15 deadline set by the General Assembly.

Donald Williams, associate director for health services regulation at the health department, said he expects that the law adopted by the General Assembly permitting the state to license Canadian pharmacies will end up in court because it is opposed by several powerful constituencies, including the pharmaceutical industry and pharmacists in Rhode Island.
