If you’re an allergy sufferer, you probably already know that law enforcement’s efforts to stem the tide of crystal meth has already seriously invaded your privacy and lengthened the time required to buy the decongestant pseudoephedrine. Sales of all medicines containing pseudoephedrine are limited and logged, and generally are only available from behind the counter at pharmacies.
Apparently there’s a new method to make meth that involves just a few pill, some chemicals, and an empty 2 litter soda bottle, that is essentially a shake and bake method that’s all the rage among meth addicts. The method requires just a few Sudafed pills and some instant cold packs (for the ammonium nitrate in them) to make an individual size portion of meth.
I’m not sure how they’re going to make it more inconvenient to get Sudafed (or the generic versions), but I have great faith in government bureaucrats come up with a more byzantine and invasive process for law abiding citizens to get what was, and still should be, and over the counter drug.
