Canadians consider blocking drug exports

In the latest twist to the drug reimportation story, the Canadian government appears ready to block large bulk shipments of prescription drugs to the US. The legislation is considered by most analysts to be an effort to avoid a possible boycott by angry US pharma companies. Three of Canada's big political parties support the measure, saying its effects will be limited and that it won't effect Internet pharmacies or limit access to drugs. Critics don't see it that way at all.
