TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — The Biden administration is urging a federal court to dismiss a lawsuit that could stand in the way of states like Florida in allowing prescriptions drugs to be imported from Canada. The administration is arguing that the lawsuit filed on behalf of U.S. pharmaceutical companies was premature because the federal government has yet to approve any importation programs. States like Florida argue that allowing federally approved drugs to be imported from Canada would save Americans millions of dollars in drugs costs. But the lawsuit raises concerns about safety and costs. The administration’s legal filing came on the same day Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis called on the federal government to approve its drug importation application.
