Yesterday, we wrote about Marcia Bergeron, who inadvertently became the poster child for the reimportation debate. The 58-year-old Vancouver resident died in December and last week the coroner made official what drugmakers and pharmacists have been saying for months - she was killed by fake meds ordered over the Internet.
Bergeronâ€™s death is a poignant reminder that counterfeit meds do exist and can be harmful. But if the cost of some meds remains out of reach for enough people, counterfeiting will likely continue. And black markets can be difficult to eradicate. Which raises a question - is it time to discuss legalizing importation? We asked you to vote, which you can do here.
