State legislators are getting nailed big-time for this. When reporters ask legislators what the economic impact of this is, they say they never considered that. It is expected to cost employers billions in sick days.

As far as stopping meth, the guys making it simply drive to Vancouver Washington, 10 minutes from Portland, to buy cold medicine by the case, or the buy it from the Internet.

This is what happens when you let liberals run the show. The meth problem is bigger than ever before, and everyone gets sick.

Oregon Passes Law on Cold Medicine

July 31, 2005 11:58 a.m. EST

Douglas Maher - All Headline News Staff Reporter

Portland, Oregon (AHN) - Legislators in Oregon passed the first law in the nation Saturday that would require doctors to write a prescription for cold medicine that contain an active ingredient that could be made into methamphetamine.

We hope this will reduce the supply" of meth, Democratic state Sen. Ginny Burdick told Reuters.

The legislation had widespread support but there were just as many detractors as well, mainly citizens without health insurance who can not afford to visit a doctor if they had a cold to get a prescription.

Drug stores nationwide are already pulling cold medicines off of shelves due to rampant abuse by teenagers using the over the counter medicines to get high.

This is the same dumb bitch that tried to introduce an AWB into Oregon law this year. I hope she gets cancer and rots from the inside.

The libs are definitely in control here.

They are pushing that everywhere, someone will come up with another version of cooking meth.

Why dont you go bust that guy we have reported for cooking meth several times in the last few years, they have even busted him for it before but they wont even bother him now.

He has probably finally found the right person to pay off.

I think its more of the just dont give a damn.

I can tell you several good stories about how around here they dont even try.

OK #1, that's like banning guns to decrease crime. It has the opposite effect.

#2, All it will do it make Meth more expensive, and thus more desirable. If it does that, because hello... you can easily get the ingredients elsewhere.

Ah.

I think around here they were (did?) going to ban spray paint. Hehe. Oh yeah... spray paint. Because the gangs were putting their "art" on everything. It might have been an age thing, like show your ID to buy the paint. Bah.

Several years ago my wife had kidney stones and was prescribed oxycodone. Without it or something like it, she would have been in agony. About that time some little cretin crushed one and snorted it or something and died. Our then dumb-ass gov Don Siegelman came on the air with the distraught mother of said ute and declared it should be banned. What a dick. After being tossed and almost indicted (no way with fed judge U W Clemons on the job) he's trying to get back in the saddle.

I think if the govs going to do anything they should manufacture meth by the tons and put a big rock candy mountain every 5 miles on the interstate- free for the taking. Supercharge it and thin the herd.

I never use Diesel, I don't care how hard they make it to get.
I don't plan on buying a .50 BMG, I don't care how hard they make it to get.
I never talk on cell phones, I don't care if they ban them completely.
I don't have high speed internet, I don't care how many controls and taxes they put on it.

Get the picture?

Higher medical bills, lower productivity, and rampant postnasal drip. Brought to you by the War on Drugs. Let's just cut to the chase and condense it all to one law: "All things not mandatory are forbidden. Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis."

Well, one day it will be something you don't think is minor, but others will (maybe buying more than a six pack of beer at a time). Then, we'll see how you like it. I don't cook meth, not even on TV. But, while in Costco with the flu once, I tried to by both nyquil and dayquil. They said I could only buy one because of federal law to curb meth production. This is because at Costco the product is bundle with two bottles. So, I got pissed and only bought the nyquil, went home, drugged up and slept. If you have a product on the open shelves, it should be open for what ever purchase quantity consumption buy the consumer.

The other poster is right, its incrementalism, which is a death of a thousand cuts. You should be pissed because this is an excuse for the courts/law enforcement lack of ability to deal with the standard crime situation.

Your apathy is duly noted.

By the case? I can tell you this part isnt true.

Consumers would have to show a photo ID, sign a log, and be limited to 7.5 grams — or about 250 30-milligram pills — in a 30-day period.

How is this a "minor" thing?

I wake up with a clogged head, decide I need some Sudafed. I realize I have none in the house, so I go to CVS/Walgreens/HEB/Kroger/wherever and get some. Take two, feel better in an hour or so.

Now, if you live in Oregon and need to get some Sudafed because you woke up with a clogged head, you have to call your doctor, set up an appointment(more than likely NOT for that day), GO to the doctor, pay your copay or whatever, THEN go to the pharmacy and get your prescription.

Yep, that's a minor thing.

Instead of banning OTC cold medicine, how about providing stiffer penalties for meth users and cookers?
Instead of banning guns and ammo, how about proficing stiffer penalties for criminals?

Sound familiar?
