From the Duluth (Minn.) News Tribune:
Pharmacy board denounces drug importation plan
The State Board of Pharmacy criticized Gov. Kathleen Sebelius' plan to help residents acquire lower-cost prescription drugs from Canada and Europe.

The six-member board said Friday that the safety of drugs imported through the I-SaveRx program - in which Wisconsin and Missouri also are participating - could not be guaranteed.

"The debate over drug importation and the higher price of prescription drugs in the U.S. has distracted the public from the important issue of health risks counterfeit medications pose to the public," the board said in a statement.
