For example many people purchase blood pressure medicine that they cannot live without. In the United States one popular medicine runs $80 per month. Purchasing the exact same meds from a Canadian pharmacy is $60 or a 3 month supply.

Attempts are being made to block all non-us online pharmacies as a risk to public health.

Additionally the administration to encourage private businesses to cut off American’s access to online pharmacies. Enlisting companies such as Google,Visa, Mastercard a Paypal.
