Rx for Canada: Close the Internet Pharmacies.

Drug companies charge different prices to different buyers internationally and within the U.S. Uninsured buyers, and those in relatively small buyer groups in the U.S., pay among the highest prices in the world. Their purchases from Canadian Internet pharmacies have until now been relatively small in volume, but could grow much larger if the President signs legislation permitting retail pharmaceutical imports. Since the prices of some drugs are relatively low in Canada, legalization of imports would likely result in large increases in demand on Canadian suppliers."
