Blagojevich Says State Might Help Residents Skirt Drug Import Ban

Blagojevich says the state "may have some soul searching to do" if a study he commissioned shows it's safe and cheaper to buy drugs from Europe.

He also says the state may have no choice but to directly help the people of Illinois take advantage of better prices offered in Canada and Europe, but the governor stressed he hasn't made a final decision on the matter.

It's illegal to buy imported prescription drugs, which the federal government warns may not be safe. Blagojevich Tuesday says a panel of advisers will travel to Europe to research drug regulation and distribution methods there.
