U.S. Relaxes Stance on Importing Prescription Drugs
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency has announced that it will stop seizing prescription drugs mailed from other countries to the United States. That doesn't mean it's now legal to buy cheap pills from Canada. The FDA will take over the enforcement of illegal "personal drug importation," but it looks as though enforcement will be minimal.
"For nearly a year, the White House has been punishing seniors for filling their prescriptions at lower Canadian prices," Nelson said in a statement. "Now it looks like the government is getting out of the business of harassing these consumers."
