Vermont Becomes First State To Permit Drug Imports From Canada
Source: Politico

"Vermont Republican Gov. Phil Scott Wednesday signed legislation making his state the first to legalize importing prescription drugs from Canada, an idea President Donald Trump's top health officials oppose that's also drawn fierce opposition from the pharmaceutical industry.

A spokeswoman for Scott said he signed the bill Wednesday morning. The measure had overwhelming support in the Democratic-controlled legislature and is one of the most aggressive attempts by a state to tackle rising drug prices that critics say are crippling state finances.

Its enactment also puts the Trump administration in a bind after the rollout of a highly anticipated plan for tackling rising drug costs. HHS still has to certify Vermont’s program.

“Trump is trumpeting his desire to do something about high-cost drugs,” said Democratic state Sen. Claire Ayer, one of the bill sponsors. “I’m hoping that they’ll see it as an opportunity for him to say that he’s done something about high drug prices.”

Something tells me if the HHS can just override any state bill they want this won't be certified?
Going to see if I can find any info about this.
HHS is the U.S. Government's principal agency for protecting the health of all Americans and providing essential human services, especially for those who are least able to help themselves.

Gov Scott did sign the bill today but it doesn't look good needing Federal approval.


Pharmaceuticals from Canada

"The Legislature created a program for wholesale importation of prescription drugs from Canada to Vermont. The bill, S.175, allocates an estimated $150,000 to $250,000 in fiscal year 2019 for the Agency of Human Services to design the drug importation program and submit a request for federal approval by July 2019.

Human Services Secretary Al Gobeille has said the program is a “long shot,” and expressed concerns about getting approval from federal regulators. Scott is “studying” the bill before deciding whether he will sign it.

This is a good idea.

This is a good idea.

It's great yet after seeing that it would need Fed approval it doesn’t look good for ever being implemented.
Maybe it more states line up behind Vermont a movement would put pressure on the HHS.
