The Case Against Reimportation

While some in Washington are pushing for the ability to be able to "reimport" non-FDA-approved drugs from Canada and other countries, both the WaPo and the New York Times today -- both on the front page, both top right -- made a slam-dunk case against it. Remember that imports to Canada that are intended to be exported are not even inspected. And, although we might import from Canada, who knows where on earth this stuff originated? As you can see from the Post story and the Times story, some poisonous substances are being exported from China and other countries and finding their way into medicines in this part of the world.

Imported goods should be safe and the US should make every effort to religiously guard against harmful products and counterfeits, whether they're electrical parts, appliances, auto parts or pharmaceuticals.
