We all try to do our best, but even those in public service don't always get it right.  This seems to be the case when it comes to drug importation.  Supporters think that simply because drugs are purchased from "safe" countries as Canada and Britain, they are actually made there and are subject to strict health regulations and oversight.  But this is a dangerous misconception.
