Wyoming Pharmacists Discourage Canadian Drug Purchases

Laramie, WY – Pharmacists in Wyoming have joined a national effort to discourage people from purchasing prescription drugs from on-line suppliers in Canada and elsewhere outside the U-S. Wyoming Pharmacy Association Director Mindy Rasmussen says there is a real danger of health problems with unsanctioned drugs. Rasmussen says just because the drugs are cheaper in Canada doesn't mean the Canadian government has certified those drugs. She says many times on-line operations are simply trying to mislead consumers into buying their products.
