    U.S. says Illinois can't import drugs from Canada
    Governor asks U.S. for pilot program to buy prescription drugs in Canada

    Chicago -- Federal authorities will not authorize the state of Illinois to buy prescription drugs from Canada, even as a small test program, because they cannot ensure the safety of those drugs, officials from the Health and Human Services Department said Monday.

    As the latest in a series of maneuvers designed to put pressure on U.S. officials who say filling prescriptions in Canada violates federal law, Gov. Rod Blagojevich of Illinois asked Tommy Thompson, the secretary of health and human services, to allow the state to buy drugs in Canada for its employees and retired employees as part of a first "federally approved drug importation pilot program."

    But William Pierce, Thompson's spokesman, said Thompson could waive the federal regulations only if he could also guarantee the safety of drugs coming from Canada. Pierce said Thompson has found no evidence to support such a guarantee.

    Facing budget deficits and rising health care costs, some officials in New England and the Midwest have voiced interest in finding a way around the law. Because of regulation in Canada, costs for drugs are 30 to 50 percent lower. The issue has pitted local and state governments against the federal government and American pharmaceutical companies.

    Federal officials say drugs from Canada can carry numerous risks -- including false labeling and uncertain ingredients.

    A study commissioned by Blagojevich concluded that the state and its employees could save up to $90.7 million a year by purchasing medicines in Canada.

    "We're hoping that once they read our letter and we have a chance to meet with the secretary, that the merits of the request will rule the day," said Cheryle Jackson, a spokeswoman for Blagojevich.
