From the Boston Globe:
Drugs from anywhere
At the back of the steel warehouse, pharmacists in lab coats are fetching bottles of prescription drugs from dimly lit shelves. They bear labels in French, Spanish, and Italian. Some come from New Zealand, 8,225 miles away.

Next stop: Minnesota.

The importation of drugs from abroad, which is illegal under US law, is going global, and this is the newest beachhead. Increasingly stymied at home, Canadian Internet pharmacies are branching out. They are setting up operations outside of Canada to buy drugs from around world and shipping them to US consumers.
