ABSTRACT

Within recent months, the U.S. has opened up the possibility for Americans to import prescription pharmaceuticals from Canada. The U.S. FDA is now accepting proposals for both personal and commercial drug importation from Canada. Importers can be individuals, wholesalers, pharmacies, and governments. This research examines the impact U.S. drug importation will have on the Canadian prescription drug supply. It updates the author's previous 2018 and 2010 studies on the same topic.
