Reports: Maine law to allow importation of drugs

State residents can buy drugs through licensed mail-order programs in Canada, U.K., Australia, New Zealand

NEW YORK — A new law in Maine will allow residents of the state to buy drugs through mail-order from licensed pharmacies in other countries, according to published reports.

The Associated Press reported that the law, an amendment to the Maine Pharmacy Act, will allow Mainers to buy drugs through a Canadian mail-order program called CanaRx and licensed programs in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.

The AP reported that the bill became law without the signature of Gov. Paul LePage and will go into effect in 90 days.
