Canada Drug Services of Kansas says it can get 4,000 kinds of medicines from Canada, including the most popular ones like Vioxx, Lipitor, and Premrin. All you need is a prescription and they do the rest.
Canada Drug Services of Kansas opened their doors on Monday. Dan Ice, Canada Drug Services Co-owner, claims that there were people waiting before they got there in the morning with prescriptions in hand. By the end of the day, 60 people had been treated including retired nurse Gwen Perko who saved 60% on her drugs.
Perko says, "I'm getting a whole year's supply for what I'd normally pay for one prescription."
There is still belief that it is illegal to bring drugs from Canada across the border into the United States. This remains a gray area as no one has been prosecuted for doing it and the feds govern it. Kansas Attorney General Phil Kline is not offering an opinion.
The couple owning this company hopes to open another one in Topeka. Canada Drug Services of Kansas can be contacted at (316) 945-6337.
