As American consumers seek their medicines at the best price, many are buying online, from foreign-based websites. Many of these websites purport to be based in Canada and some legitimate Canadian websites source their drugs from Great Britain or Ireland-believing that these drugs come from a country with a secure supply chain. This is, at best, misleading and this article aims to encourage those in the United States with the power to take action to secure the American supply chain, to do so.
