COLORADO LOOKING TO IMPORT PRESCRIPTION DRUGS FROM CANADA

Colorado Governor, Jared Polis, has signed legislation aimed at lowering prescription costs by importing drugs from Canada.

Why this matters: Rep. Jaquez Lewis, a Boulder-area Democrat who sponsored the bill, says too many Coloradans have to choose between feeding their families and paying for life-saving drugs on which they depend.

Final word: It’s too soon to tell if this will actually lower prescription costs. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar has called the proposal a gimmick, and some are skeptical it will lower prices at all.
