I think it is arrogant of the FDA to suggest that Canadian drugs imported from the US are unsafe.

I think it is a good idea for the FDA to attempt to regulate drugs coming into the U.S. from foreign countries. If we don't know what's in them they may not be safe.

A study was conducted this summer that tested drug back-channels by purchasing drugs from Canadian firms. The results in many of the tests revealed that the drugs did not even originate in Canada, but were merely transferred there prior to export to the U.S. so as to reduce regulatory restrictions. Obviously, this type of behavior can endanger the health of U.S. citizens who purchase the drugs.

Also, @#!* the homeless.

The bigger issue isn't safety.  The question is why are these drugs (at least the legal ones.  Or maybe the illegal now that I think of it.  Anyone know if blow is cheap in Canada?)  I digress.  The reason drugs are less in Canada is price controls.  We pay more to support the Canadian consumer who pays less by socialist government wishful thinking mandate.  Then when we can't afford themhere, we turn to Canada to buy them.  A house of cards and the whole thing will collapse if the FDA allows it.

I understand why they're less.  What I'm proposing isn't importing them from Canada.  I proposed instead our government imposing our own price controls such that pharmaceutical companies still make a fair profit and can continue research to develop new drugs, yet to keep prices low enough that people can actually afford them if they need them to live.  Normally I wouldn't propose this, but people are dying right now because they can't afford those drugs, so this is one industry I think we should impose price controls on.

Who decides if they need them?  Do we really need everyone to live forever?  DOWNY for instance?
