Drug Firms Say, 'No, Canada'

Drug Firms Say, 'No, Canada'--- The name they picked is Cures, but the drug makers, biotech millionaires and pharmacists who founded the group aren't searching for the next miracle drug.
They are looking for votes from the California Legislature.
The lobbying group is just one of several altruistic-sounding entities with financial links to the drug industry that have materialized around the Capitol. They want to kill a flood of legislation--including four measures being voted on this week--that would ease the way for drug imports from Canada.
