Gov. Jim Doyle has unveiled Wisconsin's prescription drug website where you can download forms to order cheaper drugs from Canada. The site links consumers to pharmacies in Vancouver, Calgary, and Winnipeg.

Doyle says the drugs are safe and reliable.

"We have taken significant steps to make the process as safe as possible," Doyle says.

You can check out the website at www.drugsavings.wi.gov

Local pharmacists say there are other ways to control the cost of prescription drugs. Many say they don't support the governor's plan.

"He needs to address the issue in other ways, certainly don't send business out of your state to a foreign nation," says pharmacist Sally Pregnot.

Pregnot suggests talking to your doctor or contacting the drug companies directly about less expensive options.
