Recently, Representative Steve Helms (R-MO) reached out to share his support for importation.
Rep. Helms has introduced legislation that would block state officials and law enforcement officers from impeding or inhibiting prescription drug importation for personal use as long as the patient has a valid prescription from a prescriber.
The bill would create a board responsible for licensing pharmacies outside the U.S. based on legal standards comparable to pharmacies located in Missouri.
We are thrilled to see states taking up the importation fight to ensure Americans have access to safe and affordable medications and we hope that other states follow Missouri’s lead.
Thank you, Rep. Helms for your leadership on this issue!
