Late last month, the Trump administration released a plan that would green-light the importation of certain drugs from Canada and potentially other foreign countries.
The administration’s proposal comes on the heels of legislative pushes by Republican Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Democratic Governor Jared Polis of Colorado to import drugs from Canada. Other states are considering similar measures.
Drugs tend to be less expensive abroad because foreign governments aggressively control their prices. Importing cheap drugs from Canada would seem to be a straightforward way to bring those lower prices to America.
