I read somewhere that it is legal to import prescription drugs for personal use as long as they are not on the scheduled list. Is this true?

OK, my next question. What is it that you need to import, that you cannot legally get here?

If they are perscription drugs, why arn't you filling your perscription when it is due?

Thats just it, you don't need a prescription when importing them.

For example I have heard of people importing Retin-A cream (an acne drug) which is presciption only here. It is not a controled substance. People import it to save the hassle and expense of going to the doctor. also it is generaly cheaper.

This is just curiosity because I simply don't understand, but if you can only obtain a substance based on prescription (meaning that you can only obtain the substance under certain cirumstances), doesn't that make it a controlled substance?

nope only Scheduled drugs are controlled substances. For example antibiotics are prescription only, but not controlled substances.

You can get any kind of controlled drug from Mexico as an example. Read her other posts, that should clue you in.

Shes a druggie, simply put.
