Drug Importation

Canadian (L) and American (R) flags sit in the foreground as Canadian pharmacist Amanda Hutchinson (L back) hands fellow pharmacist Florence Ticne (R back) the prescription drugs for a group of Minnesota Senior Citizens from the United States October 22, 2003 who have traveled nine hours by bus across the US-Canadian border to Winnipeg, Canada to buy cheaper drugs. The Minnesota Senior Federation has set up monthly bus trip to Canada to buy cheaper drugs, with some people saving over 60 percent of the cost of their prescriptions from what they would pay for the same drugs in the United States.
