Generic prescription drugs could save Texans money

This is a pretty good Houston Chronicle article about proposed bills by Sen. Rodney Ellis (D-Houston) and Rep. Scott Hochberg (D-Houston) to allow Texans to buy generic, cheaper prescription drugs from Canada. This bill would establish a program similar to those in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois, along with a website to list drug prices and the pharmacies that have been inspected and licensed in Canada.

Wanda Moebius, a spokeswoman with the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, rebuffs the bill: "Just because someone says that a drug is Canadian, it doesn't mean it's Canadian. Just because someone says it's safe, that doesn't mean it is true." Gimme a break.

And remember, just because PhRMA says Vioxx is safe, that doesn't mean it is true.
