So I’m inconvenienced and Mexican gangs make money

Wisconsin has a stupid law that you have to get Sudafed from a pharmacist. I don’t need a prescription, but I have to fill out paper work, show ID and sign into a log to make sure I don’t buy too much in a month. If I want to buy it after the pharmacy closes I’m SOL. Good thing I never get sick after 9:00 at night.

I don’t know the specifics of how to brew meth. But I asked my pharmacist if he did and he replied “yes”. Go college chemistry. He also said there wasn’t enough Sudafed in the store to make it worthwhile. He figured that the loading dock at the distributer would be a better source. Despite being so stupid that the think this particular law was a good idea the police have managed to signifigantly reduce the number of domestic meth labs. New we’re importing it from Mexico. Yeah, that’s better.

You think that law's bad? In South Carolina you can't buy beer or liquor after 7pm. At least you can substitute Sudafed for an equivalent decongestant.

It sucks by sort of solving one problem you make another one worse. Two steps forward, one step back.

College chemistry? That sounds like a lot of work. Why not just google "how to make meth"? That's so much easier. Go internet! (Thanks, Al Gore!)

Good point Jimbo! I've never bothered to look up the directions.

Cohort, last winter there wasn't an equivalent decongestant. I tried several (since I had no choice) and they really didn't work as well as Extra-Strenght 24 hour non drowsy Sudafed. You're right though, blue laws are stupid. At one point I lived in a 'dry' county in Kentucky. You had to drive across the county line to County Line Liquor to buy booze. It was the most expensive place in the state to buy beer.

It’s even stupider than you know. The same pharmacist that can’t sell me Sudafed without ID and paperwork let me pick up a prescription for Vicodin and a muscle relaxant for a fried with a wave and a smile.

Garble, have you ever tried taking two extra-strength Benadryl? Holy shit, talk about feeling loopy and out on cloud nine. It'll get rid of all allergies, and most of reality.

That's what I didn't like about it. Sudafed just makes me a little jittery. Other than that I function just fine.

Having just been to S. Carolina not too long ago I know for a fast that you can buy beer and wine 24/7 at your local gas station. Plus the bars can stay open later than 2AM, if they are a 'private' club, however they cannot sell booze after 2, only the beer and wine.

That's weird. Last time I was there I stopped at several stores and was unable to purchase. What a bunch of losers.
