From the Los Angeles Times:
Canadian-Drug Plan Stalled by Legal Risk
A proposal that Orange County employees buy name-brand prescription drugs from Canada at a discount has been stalled by concerns that the county could be sued by the federal government.

Supervisors were set to consider the proposal Tuesday, but board member Chuck Smith asked for a two-week postponement, until his last meeting before retiring. He said in an interview that he hoped to convince enough of his colleagues that his plan is defensible.
