"Canada can’t be the pharmacy for that Usa. 200 80 million people can’t expect us to provide drugs for them,Inch Health Minister Ujjal Dosanjh stated in a news conference here.
Dosanjh stated he was preparing legislation that will "make certain that bulk exports aren’t carried out" towards the U . s . States. The measure would steer clear of the plans of a number of U.S. municipalities and states to lessen drug costs by tapping the Canadian market. Individuals plans are waiting for your application of legislation in Congress.
The minister also stated he was drafting rules targeted at controlling individual purchases of Canadian prescription medications on the internet, as produced by a couple of million Americans this past year. He stated Canada would toughen its rules to want "a recognised physician/patient relationship for just about any mix-border drug sales."
Presently, patients who get a prescription from the U.S. physician might have it filled on the internet, using the prescription endorsed with a Canadian physician and also the drugs mailed from Canada straight to the individual.
Dosanjh has lengthy been a critic of the system and stated tougher rules were required to steer clear of the "dishonest" rewriting of prescriptions by Canadian-licensed doctors.
When the new rules need a Canadian physician to physically examine someone, they’d likely get rid of the Internet trade. But when they might require that the physician consult by telephone using the patient or see the outcomes of an individual’s examination with a U.S. physician, the drug sales could continue, stated Andy Troszok, president from the Canadian Worldwide Pharmacy Association.
"We would like the chance to utilize the federal government about this,Inch stated Troszok, whose association includes pharmacies which do the majority of the web and mail-order business from Canada, he stated.
Canadian prescription medication costs are controlled through the government, and also the drugs frequently cost about 30 % under within the U . s . States. Which has brought companies and governments to appear to Canada for cheaper drugs, and Americans to look on the web for Canadian pharmaceuticals.
Dosanjh yet others state that demand will swamp the Canadian pharmaceutical industry, raising prices and causing shortages.
"Our logistics is prepared to satisfy the necessity of $ 30 million Canadians, and we do not have the size of operation so that you can react to the likely need for the U.S.," stated Shaun Poston, executive director from the Canadian Pharmacists Association.
But critics repeat the big pharmaceutical companies have put pressure around the Canadian government to avoid exports from intruding around the greater-priced U.S. market.
"I believe this can be a situation from the pharmaceutical companies manipulating markets," stated Repetition. Jo Ann Emerson (R-Mo.), a co-sponsor of among the bills prior to the U.S. Congress to get rid of the government prohibition on mix-border drug sales.
"We do not have these types of limitations on every other type of trade — cars, tires, anything," she added from Washington. "It’s ridiculous the American public should spend the money for greatest prices."
Dosanjh stated the limitations on bulk sales could be enforced "when there’s lack here," but he could give couple of information on when and how that might be determined.
Troszok stated major pharmaceutical companies have declined to provide Canadian pharmacies that participate in Internet sales. "It is a cat-and-mouse game using the pharmaceutical companies. They’re very effective," he stated.
Some Canadian and U.S. critics have accused the Plant administration of pressuring Canada to limit sales within the U . s . States.

bigdawg 1111: +Lily Corvus Thank you for your intelligent comments. The problem that we face is Bernie is not going to win the dem nomination. . So we can't just say "oh well we tried" We have to keep fighting. . Its Trump or Hillary. . You know one tell tale sign that leads me to trump is the clear fact that the establishment republicans do not want him to win the nomination. . They are all up in arms and are plotting against him. This tells me they believe he will infact shake things up. . It is a fact that he is using his own money to finance his campaign. If he was going to be a sellout to the 1% he certainly wouldn't self finance his campaign. . Sometimes you have to read between the lines. . All the career lobbyists and politicians do not want TRUMP. . WHY IS THAT
