Maine becomes first state in nation to allow prescription drug imports; should California follow?

Maine became the first state in the country to enact a law that lets residents purchase mail-order drugs from some pharmacies in Canada, the U.K., New Zealand and Australia. Michael Brennan, mayor of Portland, the largest city in Maine, told the Wall Street Journal that the practice saved the city over $3 million between 2004 and 2012 for employees’ drugs.
