I noticed on the news last night they made sure to mention that drugs from Canada did not meet FDA guidlines and would be substandard. HA!<br><br>
I thought Canada actually had higher standards then the US.

The FDA has had enough bad press lately I'd be shocked if anyone falls for their scare tactics!!!<br><br>
Thank goodness someone finally saw the light. There is no reason to deny medication just to keep massaging the FDA's massively inflated ego.

I thought, and I could be wrong, that the reason people were going to Canada to buy drugs was because they were cheaper there. Therefor it is probably the drug companies that are complaining.

Yes drugs are much cheaper here- anywhere from 25-95% cheaper! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

I remember when Guiliani was so mad that NY seniors were coming here to buy their rx's because they couldn't afford them otherwise. I was so mad at him for that.

It won't pass. That would be SMART and this *is* the US government we're talking about here!<br><br>
(but it would be freaking awsome if it did!)
