From the Portland (OR) Tribune:
City looks north for cheaper drugs
The city of Portland already has saved more than $40,000 through its new, controversial — and illegal — program to import prescription drugs from Canada.

Portland, Maine, that is.

Our East Coast namesake is one of seven municipalities (along with 13 states) that either offer employees prescription drugs from Canada or plan to soon. The West Coast Portland took its first step toward joining the prescription revolt last week by directing human resources officials to look into how such a plan could work here, and how much money it could save.
