While looking for medicine from Canada for a $500 drug in the US I came across this

It is important because the cost of drugs in this country is so ridiculous. The drug companies are scamming us right in our faces and in front of the world. This website is working to stop negative bills and support positive ones for buying prescription from Canada and other places. It also will tell you who to call and what to say to this end.
RxRights is a national coalition dedicated to raising awareness and spurring action around safe prescription drug importation. The Coalition seeks to inform and educate both the public and our elected officials on the complex issues surrounding prescription drug sales in the U.S. Read more about the Coalition. This is very important especially for seniors who just get Medicare because they have to spend so much out of pocket for their medication


Individuals and organizations that support the right to safe and affordable prescription drug importation are encouraged to join the RxRights Coalition. As a member, you will receive relevant updates and action alerts and are encouraged to participate in discussions on our website. Sign up for our updates!

Ask your representatives in Congress tough questions.

Find out their position on the issue of affordable medicine. Here are some suggested questions:

Will you back the Safe and Affordable Drugs from Canada Act (S. 122)? Find out more about this bill introduced by Senators Klobuchar/McCain.
Do you support Senator Vitter’s amendment? This amendment would defund the FDA’s proposed rule to allow for the seizure and destruction of personally imported medicine.
If the answer to the above questions is “no,” ask them: “What are you doing to ensure that your constituents have access to affordable medicine?”
Here’s how you can educate members of Congress:

Let them know that millions of Americans safely utilize drug importation.
Illustrate the need for access to affordable medicine.
Use our infographic and your personal story to illustrate the severity of the problem.
