From the Providence (RI) Journal:
State OKs drugs from Canada
Following an animated final public hearing, the state Health Department yesterday approved regulations allowing the state to license Canadian pharmacies. Rhode Island is the first state to take this step.

Barring a legal challenge, Rhode Island residents will be able to import prescription medications -- through the mail or by private shipper -- starting next month.

Safety and cost dominated the hearing at the Health Department's main auditorium. About 100 people attended, including dozens of older people, pharmacists and representatives of the U.S. drug industry.
