Nevada Shoots FDA the Bird

It looks like Nevada has more balls than Vincente Fox. At least Nevada is telling the Feds where to stick it on drug policy issues. From Reuters:

Over objections by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Nevadans will be able to buy prescription drugs from Canada over the Internet starting next week, a spokesman for Gov. Kenny Guinn said on Friday.
“Monday is the anointed day,” said Steve George, a spokesman for the Republican governor, referring to when a state Web site linking consumers to pharmacies in Canada goes into operation.

I found the last line of the article somewhat humorous:

“There will be a caveat on the Web site saying that the federal government views getting prescriptions filled in Canada with non-FDA-approved drugs as illegal,” George said.

This would be doubly true if they hadn’t shut Marc Emery down.
