Drug Reimportation: Promise or Peril?
For more than a year Montgomery city officials have been flouting state and federal laws by importing cheaper drugs from Canada. Yesterday in Montgomery, the Food and Drug Administration and various state, national and Canadian pharmacist groups launched a massive PR campaign aimed at convincing consumers that that is a prescription for disaster. They plan to blanket the state’s pharmacies with more than 630-thousand posters, flyers, and prescription bag inserts that warn of the safety dangers in imported drugs. WBHM’s Tanya Ott
talked with Kerry Prickett,
president-elect of the Alabama Pharmacy Association, about their concerns.
