Leaders mull meth laws while police fight problem (March 16)
- “Just stop selling pseudoephedrine altogether. Marijuana, cocaine and most illegal drugs have legitimate purposes, but we don’t take that into account. Anyone who allows pseudoephedrine to be sold, and the purchaser uses it for meth ... the person who sells it should be charged with dealing in meth. You are part of the problem. Quit selling it.”
THB: That sounds pretty harsh, since there is a legitimate use for this ingredient. The system that tracks the purchase of these drugs needs to work better.
