Federal Government Upset at Gov. Doyle.

The Federal Government is blasting Gov. Doyle for helping Wisconsin residents import illegal Canadian prescription drugs thought a state website.

The U.S Food and Drug Administration associate policy and planning commissioner William Hubbard sent Doyle a letter. He says the state's new website undermines America's consumer protection statutes and could harm state residents. But Doyle says the FDA is trying to scare people.

The Governor says Wisconsin doesn't have much choice if Federal officials continue to ignore the high cost of prescription drugs stateside.
