Should U.S citizens be able to buy cheaper foreign drugs?

Should U.S citizens be legally allowed to buy cheaper forign imported drugs as long as theyre safe, cutting medical costs for millions of people and making prescriptions affordable for everyone? In my opinion they should be allowed to so long as the drugs are still approved and checked, which would force the domestic drug companies to make their prices and products more competitive, and in turn lower the cost of drugs for everyone.

Yes I do believe we should be able to do that. Here in the United States the price of our medicine is outragous. Even with insurance its still high. I dont know what I would do with out my insurance.

i wish we could. i think its disgusting how expensive medicine is in the US. i used to pay around $22 each month for birth control pills to regulate my hormones, and that was AFTER my health insurance took effect. medicine is just so much cheaper abroad. ive been lucky to have lived in france for 7 months and now the netherlands for the past year, so i can buy things a lot cheaper here. when i was in france, it cost less than 3 euros for a month's worth of birth control pills, and here in the netherlands its a little more than 3 euros each month. and those are both without health insurance. just think how much money im saving!
