From the Chattanoogan (Tenn.):
Sen. Jackson Advocates Allowing Prescription Drugs From Canada
Sen. Doug Jackson (D-Dickson) today called for legislative action on prescription drug costs. He addressed the issue of rising drug costs at a meeting of the TennCare Oversight Committee on which he serves.

“Tennesseans could save millions of dollars if we imported prescription drugs from Canada,” Sen. Jackson said. “Just looking at the top 20 drugs used by TennCare, taxpayers could save $181 million if we imported those same drugs from Canada.”
