U.S. blocks drugs sent from Canada

Chicago Tribune (John Chase & Christi Parsons):
The Bush administration has begun selectively seizing prescription drugs imported under a program created by Gov. Rod Blagojevich, ratcheting up pressure to stop a practice that the governor says will save money for consumers but regulators contend is unsafe and illegal.
Did the Bush administration and federal government issue warnings about shoddy health practices in Canada before this?

The Bush administration is merely acting as a thug enforcer for the pharmaceutical industry. Is there anything more to this?

CBC (Beth Gorham):

WASHINGTON (CP) - The head of an Ontario company that supplies cheaper prescription drugs to several states blasted U.S. officials Thursday for seizing imports last month, saying the move could have endangered American seniors.

Tony Howard, president of CanaRx based in Tecumseh, Ont., says the U.S. Food and Drug Administration stopped 26 per cent of medications going to clients in the I-SaveRx program during the first two weeks of February.
