[color=#333333][font=palatino, georgia, times, serif]Will Grigg's[url="http://lewrockwell.com/grigg/grigg-w254.html"] article[/url] on Friday about the woman arrested, abused, and humiliated in Alabama for purchasing Sudafed should make your blood boil--unless you are a conservative drug warrior. The Republicans in the House and Senate who voted for the Combat Methamphetamine Epidemic Act, which makes criminals out of people who want Sudafed for their stuffy nose, and the Republican president who signed the bill (Bush), are despicable human beings despite all their talk about family values, less regulation, the Constitution, and limited government.[/font][/color]
[color=#333333][font=palatino, georgia, times, serif]The Combat Methamphetamine Epidemic Act is title VII of the USA PATRIOT Improvement and Reauthorization Act of 2005. In the House, 207 out of 225 Republicans voted for the [url="http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d109:hr3199:"]bill[/url]. Ron Paul, of course, voted no, and so did Walter Jones. In the Senate, every single Republican voted for the bill, including such great conservatives as Rick Santorum, John McCain, Richard Shelby, Mitch McConnell, and Jim DeMint. I[url="http://lewrockwell.com/vance/vance285.html"]told you[/url] DeMint was a drug warrior. The Republican Party is never going to be taken over by libertarians and made the party of liberty and limited government. It is a party of police statists.[/font][/color]

[color=#000000][font=Times New Roman, Times, serif][size=3]The question seemed harmless, as did the questioner, Sgt. Tim Soronen of the Demopolis, Alabama police department. Diane Avera, the 45-year-old grandmother from Meridian, Mississippi to whom that question was posed, couldn’t see any harm in answering it candidly.[/size][/font][/color]
[color=#000000][font=Times New Roman, Times, serif][size=3]"I came over to buy some Sudafed for our scuba diving trip this weekend, since we can’t buy it in Meridian anymore," Mrs. Avera explained. [/size][/font][/color]
[color=#000000][font=Times New Roman, Times, serif][size=3]Soronen asked Avera if she knew it was against the law to cross the state line to buy Sudafed. [/size][/font][/color]
[color=#000000][font=Times New Roman, Times, serif][size=3]"No, sir, I did not know," the startled woman replied.[/size][/font][/color]
[color=#000000][font=Times New Roman, Times, serif][size=3]"I need you to step out of the car," Soronen demanded.[/size][/font][/color]
[color=#000000][font=Times New Roman, Times, serif][size=3]"For what? I swear I didn’t know. What did I do?" Avera asked in alarm.[/size][/font][/color]
[color=#000000][font=Times New Roman, Times, serif][size=3]"You came to Demopolis to buy some Sudafed," came the curt response. "Step to the back of the truck."[/size][/font][/color]

Yea, heaven forbid that someone tries to actually do something to help curtail the production of meth.

[/quote]Hiw do you think they get the material to make meth? They send people in who do not look suspicious to buy quantities of it.

Do you really think this helps slow down the production of meth?

I'm more of a mind it just makes it a pain in the ass to get decent freaking cold medicine.

Ah, now the argument from the right is based on (misplaced) pragmatism, not Constitutionality or what's more "free".

I bought some sudafed about 2 weeks ago. Spent the night in jail...with some dude named "Axe McKillyu." My cold didn't both me that night, but I did come out walking funny. Fun times.

I understand your point 100%. But I also believe that doing nothing to fix the hard drug problem (not talking about pot) is also not the answer.
