NH Governor Craig Benson had six prescriptions filled by one Canadian
pharmacy, for a savings of $550 over US prices, and had the pills
tested by the state crime lab. They were found to be safe, and
contained the stated dosage of the stated drug. 

Small surprise, because, unlike US pharmacies which dole out pills by
hand, leaving the risk of local errors, the prescriptions filled all
constituted drugs packaged and labelled by the manufacturer, in many
cases, produced here in the US in US plants by US drug companies.
