Last October, U.S. Customs caved to Congressional pressure and stopped seizing prescriptions sent from Canada. Now, Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) is proposing a one-year extension to this program. (See Extension sought on importing medicine.)
Sen. Vitter should read the news coming out of Canada before extending this unsafe plan. He should also recognize the pesky fact that imports from Canada are dropping rapidly thanks to Part D.
Unfortunately, I fear that Sen. Vitter wants to legalize drug diversion so that we'll forget about his own illegal diversions.
