California bans among laws set to take effect across nation


By Valerie Richardson - The Washington Times

Monday, December 26, 2011

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/dec/26/new-12-laws-no-caffeine-in-beer-shark-fins-in-soup/

California also became the first state in the nation to require a prescription for obtaining any drug containing dextromethorphan, an ingredient found in many popular over-the-counter cough suppressants, including Robitussin, NyQuil and Dimetapp.

The law was prompted by a spike in the use of cough syrup as a recreational drug.

This will surely keep the cost of health care down.

Want to buy a $5 bottle of Nyquill?

Now you need a $100 doctor visit. Yep, Liberals love looking out for the poor and needy.

Ran into that bullshit last night at Target. Wife needed NyQuil, and the monkey behind the counter asked to see my ID. Showed her through the clear window in my wallet, and she came back with "I need to swipe it through."

In front of a half dozen customers, I asked, deadpan, "what the fuck do you need to swipe it for? They don't even put the real stuff in NyQuil anymore." (I thought this was about the Feds and pseudoephedrine)

This crap about dextromethorphan supposedly doesn't even take effect until 2012, yet they're swiping our IDs already.

At normal doses, DXM is quite safe. Dextromethorphan affects the brain, specifically the region that controls coughing. However, at high doses – as much as 10 to 50 times the suggested amount – DXM can cause hallucinatory and dissociative effects similar to those of PCP or ketamine (special K.) Some people assume that teens who abuse cough medicine are after the alcohol content, but they’re really after DXM.

Something new.

Lol, actually I think that song was about drinking codeine cough syrup.

I lived in Houston when that was popular and recall reading about people breaking into pharmacies and stealing codeine cough syrup
I remember thinking: They took the trouble to break into a pharmacy, but stole a mild drug that is legal OTC in most every other nation. Serious retardation

I heard that some companies were putting something in cough syrup that would make you vomit if you consumed too much of it in an effort to combat this.

Either way, store shelves will be bare if we ban everything that can get you high, drunk, inebriated, intoxicated, or otherwise messed up.

I used to be able to tolerate it for cough control, until about age 40. Since then it makes me stay up all night with bizarre, unpleasant dreams.

Codeine is much more effective and safer for me.

From a public health policy standpoint, this seems to be completely wrongheaded:

The public health cost from increased disease transmission as a result making it more difficult to get cough suppressant will far outweigh, by a factor of ~~ 100X, the benefit of stopping idiot Jr. High School children from robotripping.

Watch for a measurable, significant uptick in sick leave usage in California, particularly in areas where there's a lot of public transit use.

Just wait until you need to go to the doctor for a "paper cut". "God" help anyone trying to dress a wound with a clean shop rag, electrical/duct tape and some whiskey(to prevent infection and to help with the pain. ). You'll be charged with off label use , administering medical care without a license AND administering medical care that has not been authorized by a health department official. All felonies.

I really don't like this shit.

Once a year I get seasonal allergies. For me Claritin D works well and has no noticeable side effects. Some shithead tweaker has caused me to have to go through a bunch of shit just because my nose is running? How about we just shoot those guys in the head and give me my damn snot pill? Easily available shit either doesn't work or has side effects (mostly doesn't work).

If you think this hasn't changed availability try small town Texas. They don't sell the stuff that works for 30 miles from my FIL's place.

I no longer blame the dopers or the dealers for doing what they do...it's like Zebras with stripes... no matter how many times you give it a bath it is still a Zebra and it has stripes. I blame the statist assholes who think that you can pass laws and change people by legislative fiat. Dopers and Dealers will continue to dope and deal, they will find alternatives or new ways of getting high. It is the law abiding people who are sicker than dogs at 3am in the local stop and rob looking for relief from their symptoms, those are the one that will suffer.

As for the additct, dopers, dealers, and legistaltors, they can all build a bondfire and jump in it. Assholes.

As a kid, we always had a bottle of cough syrup with codeine in the fridge. It was often was tossed and replaced with a fresh bottle every year or so.

I doubt it was ever tossed empty, but due to age.

Those were the days of personal responsibility.

It's important to note that recreational use of DXM is hardly habit forming. It's not exactly the most pleasant experience generally
I would imagine that the majority of drug and alcohol abusers would gladly pick a legitamate hard drug over a cough syrup high any day.

This is something done by young kids once or twice who have no access to hard drugs yet, or the experimental drug user just to check it out.
If it were truly a public health issue, the media would be all over the first pharmacy to claim they were sold out of coricidin w/ some hyperbole article about this "new threat"

Purple drank is Phenergan VC. Codeine.

DXM has been abused for decades, it isnt anything new. Its actually an opioid; levomethorphan is a schedule II analgesic.
