Here's a free idea to help America solve its pharmaceutical woes

Canada Drug Export Ban Could Change Rx Landscape in U.S.
By Amanda Gardner

FRIDAY, July 1 (HealthDay News) -- If Canada makes good on its pledge this week to restrict exports of prescription drugs, it will mean short-term headaches for U.S. consumers needing cheaper, potentially lifesaving pharmaceuticals (continued)...

Cheap drugs from Canada are not the answer.......Cheap drugs from the US are!

-Here's a free idea for my American friends............imitate the US Department of Veteran Affairs and every HMO. It seems pretty obvious that the solution to the problem of high drug prices is to buy them in bulk. In other words the AARP should create a buying group out of all of its members, hell.............send out membership cards to every uninsured American.........works out to about 45 million people.............pretty good buying power there.

Did a small study during my MBA that compared drug pricing in the US. Lo and behold, those that bought in bulk got cheaper prices...........go figure.
