From the Boston Globe:
State OKs drug imports from Canada
The state Health Department has approved regulations allowing Rhode Island to license Canadian pharmacies, making the state the first in the nation to take such a step to help seniors get cheaper prescription drugs.

The new regulations were filed Thursday at the secretary of state's office and will take effect in 20 days. Barring a legal challenge, their approval means Rhode Island residents will be able to import through the mail or by private shipper prescription medications from Canada by the end of January.
