5. You don't get it. Some of the pills that appear to be shipped from legitimate sources to Canada,

where they are carefully regulated and inspected, don't actually come from those sources. And they are not regulated or inspected in Canada or here. They are just routed here through the mail, and the consumer has no way to know if they're getting a genuine drug or a counterfeit.

Not every drug factory is created equal. Just because Merck makes some drugs in India doesn't mean that every drug that comes from India (or anywhere) and goes through Canada, is a legit drug that IS what it says it is.

For consumers in Canada, the government makes sure consumers are getting the product they're supposed to be getting. But the government has clearly stated that drugs on their way to the US could be counterfeit -- there is no assurance that they are the same product sold in Canada; and the online pharmacy might not be associated with Canada at all.

So why can't we write GOOD legislation, that links our prices for genuine Merck products with the prices in Canada, instead of a bill that makes US citizens easy marks for scammers with online sites?
