Flori­da sues FDA over drag­ging its feet on Cana­di­an drug im­port pro­gram's ap­proval

The state of Flori­da is of­fi­cial­ly su­ing the FDA for the agency’s fail­ure to au­tho­rize the state’s Cana­di­an drug im­port plan, af­ter the state sub­mit­ted its pro­pos­al more than two years ago.

“In the near­ly two years while Flori­da’s SIP pro­pos­al has been pend­ing, the FDA has asked for sev­er­al clar­i­fi­ca­tions and sup­ple­ments but has pro­vid­ed no out­ward ev­i­dence of sub­stan­tive progress to­wards ap­prov­ing the pro­pos­al,” the suit filed in the mid­dle dis­trict of Flori­da court on Tues­day says.
