buying imported drugs
Why Shouldn't We Buy Imported Drugs?

If it's wrong for retailers to profit from hurricane-caused scarcity of necessities (''With Storm Gone, Floridians Are Hit With Price Gouging,'' front page, Aug. 18), it's wrong for drug makers to profit from government-caused scarcity of drugs.

Yet the Food and Drug Administration supports drug company attempts to restrict imports, citing safety concerns.

If people forgo medicine because of high prices, isn't that unsafe?
