Allow individuals, pharmacists, and wholesalers to import prescription drugs from licensed Canadian pharmacies

The United States spends more than $1,000 per person per year on prescription drugs – that’s nearly 40 percent more than Canada, the next highest spender.

In 1999, Sanders became the first Member of Congress to take a busload of Americans across the border into Canada to purchase prescription drugs. Americans should not have to pay higher prices for the exact same drugs than our Canadian neighbors simply because Congress is bought and paid for by the powerful pharmaceutical industry.

72 percent of Americans support this policy of allowing Americans to easily import safe and affordable prescription drugs from Canada.
