From the Detroit News:
Druggists would buy Canadian
A majority of pharmacists would buy cheaper prescription drugs from Canada and sell them in the United States if the practice were legal, according to a new University of Michigan study.

Nearly 70 percent of pharmacists said they would import medicines from Canada if allowed, based on a survey of 401 pharmacists in Michigan, Illinois, Florida and Minnesota.

"There are pharmacists out there that would really like to find ways to get their patients less expensive medications," said David Nau, one of the study's authors and a professor at U-M's College of Pharmacy. "They understand there are patients who have difficulty paying for their medications and would like to help them."
