Gov. Blagojevich announced today that Illinois is going to start importing prescription drugs from overseas, to reduce the costs for state residents without insurance plans or those with high co-pays. The plan isn't exactly legal, but state officials have noticed that the FDA has yet to prosecute someone for buying drugs out of the country, so they're going ahead with the plan. In response, the FDA is threatening to take the state to court, so who knows if the plan will ever actually get off the ground, or for how long it'll be operating?
