From the Los Angeles Times:
Board Rejects Drug Import Bid
Orange County supervisors Tuesday rejected a proposal to let government workers and retirees buy prescription drugs from Canada, a plan that could have saved millions of dollars but would have violated federal law.

The idea drew support from its originator, Supervisor Chuck Smith, and Supervisor Chris Norby, who said the county should be ready to launch such a program if rules against importation are relaxed.

But the board majority had a two-word response to Smith's plan: It's illegal.
