Making Meth

The latest bad news from the world of methamphetamine is that makers of the drug have perfected a one-pot recipe that enables them to manufacture their highly addictive product while on the move, often in their car. The materials they need — a two-liter soda bottle, a few cold pills and some household chemicals — are easily obtained and easily discarded, often in a trash bag dumped along the highway.

The only effective solution is to put the genie back in the bottle by returning pseudoephedrine to prescription-drug status.  Pseudoephedrine is a nasal decongestant found in some cold and allergy medicines.

    “…he cooks that crystal meth because his ‘shine don’t sell

    I need to ask permission from the government to consume a drug ….because? What am I missing

    Does that mean that we should stock up before it goes to a prescription?

    I agree: if it goes prescription, we will see meth from other countries. And I would bet that meth addicts will all of a sudden get stuffy noses.

    For some reason I didn’t peg Goodman as a drug warrior, but he’s as content to abridge our liberty as any cock-of-the-walk conservative.

    What a free adult wants to ingest is none of your business, as a genuine supporter of freedom like Milton Friedman didn’t shrink from explaining.
