Russian Roulette Buying Overseas Drugs?

Dozens of cities, counties and school districts are helping their employees buy medicines from pharmacies in Canada and overseas, even though FDA says importing prescription drugs is illegal, is stepping up enforcement and has said doing so is dangerous because of the possibility that medications are counterfeit, mislabeled or otherwise unsafe. The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy, a nonprofit association that promotes safe pharmacy practices, notes that if cities and counties have done their due diligence to ensure their employees are getting drugs from reputable sources, then there is nothing wrong with it. If not, they could be playing Russian roulette.
