Stop Rx Greed

Tell your legislators to support a Canadian drug importation program.

Americans pay the highest drug prices in the world while drug companies rake in billions of dollars in profit. Tell your lawmakers that we need to:

  • Protect older Americans. No one should have to choose between food and medicine.
  • Make drugs affordable. Prescription drugs don’t work if you can’t afford them.
  • Support a Canadian drug importation program. Vermont, Florida, and Colorado have all passed legislation to allow Canadian drugs to be imported to their states. Drugs sold in Canada can be up to 10 times cheaper than drugs sold in the United States, and an importation program could allow these savings to be passed on to consumers.

 

Other states are taking bipartisan action to lower prescription drug prices. Please take action NOW to create a Canadian drug importation program in Connecticut.

Dear [Decision Maker],

Americans pay the highest drug prices in the world while drug companies rake in billions of dollars in profit. Meanwhile, many people struggle to keep up with the cost of their prescription medication. No one should have to choose between food and medicine. We need you to protect older Americans and pass legislation to lower prescription drug costs now.





Connecticut residents need your help. Please support a Canadian drug importation program and allow safe and less expensive prescription medication to be sold in Connecticut.

Sincerely,
