Here is something that hadn't occured to me. Thanks to Cafe Hayek for the story. Apparently Canada is worried about the U.S. importing drugs and some Canadians are hoping to ban the exporting of those drugs.

"Groups claiming to represent 10 million Canadians called on Ottawa to ban the export of prescription drugs, arguing that Canada cannot afford to address U.S. drug shortages and soaring prescription costs with its own stock."

I was focusing in on the fact that in the long-run allowing reimportation would not help the situation and could possibly hurt the situation in the U.S. but I hadn't even thought about the fact that Canada could be hit that hard by our actions. It seems so clear now, but I was being near sighted in just looking at how the U.S. would be effected.
