Vermont first state to legalize drug imports

"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 a
re crippling state finances.....

Drug reimportation legislation has been introduced in a handful of other states, but most
of the bills stalled this year."
