The hunt for cheaper prescription drugs long has led consumers to reach beyond U.S. borders, but under a new Maine law, their search now will have the state’s blessing, says the Wall Street Journal.

The law, the first of its kind, sanctions the direct purchase of mail-order drugs from some foreign pharmacies. It has ignited a court battle with the pharmaceutical industry and set the stage for a broader fight over access to less-costly medication.
