Governor of Illinois operates program to re-import prescription drugs from Canada

The Governor of Illinois is launching a program to allow its citizens to re-import prescription drugs from not only Canada, but other countries around the world. It's all a part of a growing grassroots effort to give citizens access to more affordable prescription drugs.

A growing number of states like Minnesota, Wisconsin and New Hampshire have officially thumbed their noses at the FDA by creating online resources that actually lists Canadian pharmacies where people can purchase prescription drugs. It's all part of the ongoing debate in which the FDA says all drugs are safe unless they're from Canada, in which case they're dangerous, unless we have a flu vaccine shortage, in which case they're safe, unless it's made from a plant or herb, in which case it just might kill you.

The FDA has vowed to continue protecting American consumers by making sure they pay the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs. Apparently that's great for the U.S. economy unless, of course, you happen to actually live in the U.S.

Drug companies in the United States say they need the higher drug prices to pay for the hundreds of millions of dollars in corporate bonuses handed out to executives. This is called "research and development."

The FDA is threatening to use the courts in an effort to get a judge to declare that purchasing prescription drugs from other countries is illegal. That makes perfect sense. There's nothing in this country made in other countries. I mean, if you go to Wal-Mart, everything there says 'Made in the U.S.A,' doesn't it? The FDA, by the way, still can't produce a single Canadian who has been harmed in any way by Canadian prescription drugs -- that is, in any way worse than how people are normally harmed by prescription drugs in the first place. At the same time, the agency can't produce any Americans who have been harmed by prescription drugs from Canada either, but there are a hundred thousand people falling over dead from using prescription drugs purchased from U.S. pharmacies -- a statistic the FDA conveniently ignores.
