Kansas House considers banning drug imports:
Lawmakers are pushing to outlaw the importation of prescription drugs, three months after the state joined an importation program sanctioned by Gov. Kathleen Sebelius.Yes. Be very afraid of those Canadian drugs that were made in this country. They could be dangerous.
The ban on imports would apply to those who sell the drugs — both in the United States and in Canada — and would not penalize consumers who imported prescription drugs. Lawmakers who support the ban say imported drugs are potentially dangerous because they circumvent U.S. safeguards and hurt pharmacists and drug companies.
