Can we have our pseudoephedrine back?

    You recall they took all of the antihistamine that worked (pseudoephedrine) off the shelves recently to prevent meth labs from getting it.

    Well, we prove again that when something is outlawed, only outlaws have the something:

    Since it didn't work, can we please have our pseudoephedrine back?

    This doesn't mean it isn't working. One thing the article doesn't point out was the vast number of shoplifting cases involving the meds. When they are out on the shelves, people were stealing dozens of packages at a time.

    While the law isn't a fix-all (which none ever are), it does make it more difficult for cooks.

    Yeah, but it is like taking our NFA guns because some misused them.

    They can control some other key ingredient and let us have our medicine.

    Or, just execute the MF's who get caught making it for all I care.

    We will never know how much meth would be made without the restrictions on pseudoephedrine, but the numbers are going up anyway; so it's not doing what it was supposed to do.

    Reminds me of the old hippy joke:

    Hippy 1: "Wha'cha doing carrying that big stick, man?"

    Hippy 2: "To keep the pink elephants away."

    Hippy 1: "I don't see any pink elephants."

    Hippy 2: "Yeah, it's working."
