From the Pawtucket (RI) Times:
Closer to the border
Rhode Islanders may soon be able to purchase cheaper prescription drugs from Canada without leaving the Ocean State.

The state Department of Health approved new regulations Thursday that will allow the licensing of Canadian pharmacies to do business in Rhode Island, implementing a law passed unanimously by both chambers of the General Assembly earlier this year.

The new regulations will be in effect by Jan. 20, said Don Williams, DOH’s assistant director for health services regulation, "unless someone enjoins us or goes to court."
