2. Some of this bill is good, but not the part about importing drugs from Canada.

Why? Because Canada has made it clear that they will NOT regulate, inspect, or have anything to do with drugs that pass through Canada on the way to the US. Some of the pharmacy sites where US customers might order drugs only have a Canadian mailing address -- they're not actually in Canada, despite the deceptive advertising.

IOW, the drugs US consumers will get are NOT the same ones that Canadians get, which ARE regulated and inspected. We have already had a problem with fake drugs from Canada being discovered in the US mail in Seattle.

The REAL solution is not to add US consumers onto the Canadian system with only 1/10 of our population, trying to funnel our drugs through that country. It is for US pharmacies to be able to negotiate the same prices directly with the manufacturers as are paid by the pharmacies in Canada.
