Gov. Kathleen Sebelius says Kansas will join three other Midwest states in arranging for state residents to buy prescription drugs from Canada, Ireland and the U.K. as part of a plan to reduce the cost of the medicines.

Sebelius said the drugs being purchased are the same as those sold in the U.S.
