(OPEN):
"A-A-R-P MICHIGAN" WILL HOLD A RALLY, ON MONDAY [NOVEMBER 18TH], JUST ACROSS THE DETROIT RIVER FROM WINDSOR--IN SUPPORT OF A BILL THAT WOULD ALLOW THE STATE TO IMPORT PRESCRIPTION-DRUGS, FROM CANADA.  MELISSA SEIFERT ["SY-FURT"] IS THE GROUP'S ASSOCIATE STATE-DIRECTOR FOR GOVERNMENTAL AFFAIRS...

(SEIFERT):
"
MICHIGANDERS--AND OTHER AMERICANS--SHOULDN'T HAVE TO PAY THE HIGHEST PRICES IN THE WORLD, FOR THE MEDICINES THAT THEY NEED.  THAT'S WHY MORE AND MORE OF THEM ARE PAYING OUT-OF-POCKET, TO CROSS THE BORDER INTO CANADA--SO THAT THEY CAN BUY PRESCRIPTION-DRUGS AT COSTS THAT ARE UP TO 10-TIMES LESS THAN IN THE U-S.  WHAT'S MORE, A THIRD OF MICHIGANDERS WHO ARE PRESCRIBED MEDICATIONS DON'T BUY THEM--CITING AFFORDABILITY AS THE PRIMARY REASON.  MEDICATIONS DON'T WORK IF PEOPLE CAN'T AFFORD THEM--WHICH IS WHY WE SUPPORT STATE-SENATOR JOHNSON'S BILL."

(CLOSE):
MONDAY'S RALLY--AT PORT DETROIT'S "WATERVIEW LOFT"--BEGINS AT 11 A-M.  TO LEARN MORE, VISIT "A-A-R-P"-DOT-ORG-SLASH-"M-I".
