LONGVIEW, Texas, Nov. 19 State inspection and licensing ofCanadian online pharmacies offers a much-needed solution for U.S. citizens whoare burdened by the high cost of prescription drugs. Unfortunately themajority of these programs are new and underdeveloped, offering citizenslimited and inconvenient access.

As a result of recent legislation from states like Nevada and Texas,citizens will be afforded the opportunity to purchase prescription drugs fromlicensed Canadian online pharmacies more voluntarily. The governors of thesestates have both signed off on bills that are designed to ensure high levelsof safety and security for U.S. citizens, many of whom already order theirprescription drugs from licensed Canadian online pharmacies. Countless U.S.pharmaceutical manufacturers vigorously protest these initiatives througharguments focused on or around drug quality and origin.

"Numerous U.S. pharmaceutical manufacturers are creating diversions inhopes of instilling fear and doubt in consumers who are seeking alternativesto traditional health care such as licensed Canadian online pharmacies," saysRxium LLC CEO and founder of Rxium LLC's CEO adds,"State programs which support ordering prescription drugs from licensedCanadian pharmacies, like those found at, will safely guide citizensto licensed Canadian pharmacies protecting them from rogue offers U.S. citizens being wrongfully impacted by the high cost ofprescription drugs a logical approach to affordable health care.

We should all be ashamed. But we should also bethankful that there are Canadians who help our weakest, when we do nothing."
