ANDRADE, CA, U.S.-MARCH 22: People line up at U.S. Customs with their purchases of prescriptions drugs and souvenirs bought in the Mexican town of Algodones March 22, 2005. Although U.S. law prohibits importation of medications except for patients with life-threatening illnesses the ban is generally not enforced by customs inspectors and usually Americans area allowed to bring in up to a 3 month supply of medications. ©Radhika Chalasani
