Episode Description
Saturday, Nov 9, 2013 - 6:00 PM    On Saturday, drug companies and the State of Maine are locked in a battle that pits savings against safety: Maine employers and consumers say that importing prescription pharmaceuticals from foreign mail-order pharmacies saves them a lot of money. They convinced legislators to pass a law legalizing imports. The drug industry and the state's pharmacists say imports can be dangerous, even deadly, while supporters of the law say there's no danger because the drugs are identical to those in the U.S. D
