Summary
Pharmaceutical prices in the U.S. are pushing patients to have their prescriptions filled in Canada, where drugs such as Lipitor cost less. Budget-conscious state governments are also eyeing Canadian distributors as a way to manage their prescription plans while making fiscal ends meet. But officially speaking, such transactions are still illegal in the U.S.-and the medicines themselves, traveling outside the domain of the FDA, may not even be safe. In this two-segment program, NewsHour health correspondent Susan Dentzer taps senators, governors, FDA officials, pharmacists, and the CEO of drug manufacturing giant Pfizer to present a balanced view of one of today's most controversial topics.
