    I thought it was Kentucky, but yah all those Southern States are essentially the same. I get em confused too. Lots of Meth addicts, lots of welfare cases, not lots of contributors to society.

    @Fishbone345 Generally, the south is what it is because of all those "carpetbagging Yankees"....hey, that's what they tell and call me all the time.....and I'm from California. LOL

    @DARSB Not surprising. I think Utah is tops in prescription drug abuse. Cuz you know it's not bad if a Doc approves. I loves my Mormon hypocrites, such a fun people to make fun of.

    legalize all drugs and worry bout things that really matter, like bettering education for our children, making healthcare available to everyone, and fixing our econamy. drugs are bad, yes, but nobody is forced to do them. and as long as u are an adult, i don't see a problem with u getting high. the government shouldn't say what u can and can't put in ur body.

    When the economy suffers, drug use rises, especially the amphetamines, as people use them to stay alert enough to work longer hours.

    Many of these people probably first started using amphetamines in the military, as they are often given to soldiers. Some of my buddies who were pilots were basically forced to take Dextro-amphetamine, if they wanted to retain their positions.

    @Denizen_Kate Real country is Hank Williams (Senior, Bocephus and III), Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, The Man in Black, Merle Haggard and the likes.
    This new shit is just disrespectful.

    @Fishbone345 - I own one album classified as country and western: Patsy Cline's Greatest Hits. I do own two Willie Nelson albums, but I wouldn't call them country. One is Milk Cow Blues ('cause I LOVE blues) and the other is an oldie called "Stardust."

    Yeah, right, by creating even more worthless people that are now stuck sponging off their parents or sucking on the government teet is excellent for our country. If it was outright killing them all, that would be different.

    making cold meds there hard to get will not stop those pesky bank supported cartels form getting it to them. all it has done so far is boost the cartels profits. nappy janet must be proud.

    Could someone please explain that picture? Is that a light bulb being used as some sort of pipe? Is this why incandescent bulbs are no longer in vogue?

    Yes, the bulb is being used as a pipe.
    And no, incandescent bulbs are getting unpopular because they use more energy. When I replaced the incandescents in my townhouse a few years back, my average electric bill dropped from $100 monthly to $80 ! That's an annual savings of $240. I know this because I was on "measured" billing, paying the same amount, my average, monthly.

    When will our society realize that prohibition laws do not work? WAKE UP PEOPLE! There will be meth here if psuedoephedrine were ban altogether. I don't understand where the stupid idea, that to have meth you have to have psuedoephidrine. Since 2005 Tennessee has enacted tougher and tougher laws, has anyone realized that with each law our rankings in lab bust climbed along with them? I do not have all the answers but I'm darn sure smart enough to see that our present approach is not working and in fact may be very counter productive. 1st addiction is a medical condition and can not be cured through jurisprudence, if anyone thinks that new laws will cure an illness, we need to pass one to help their mental illness. 2nd we need to teach the truth about methamphetamine use and addiction. Not the crazy hyped up media reports that most believe. 3rd we as a society are going to have to come to terms with the fact a percentage of people are going to do drugs. I'm sorry but it's just fact. Amphetamine usage, which includes meth, has effectively remained the same for the last 40 years. That should tell us that all the measures and laws passed have had no real effect. I do wish I had all the right answers. But I don't.

    I buy allergy medicine that contains pseudo-ephedrine and it is a damn shame that I have to be treated like a criminal when I buy 2 packages because some people use it to make more potent dope. Legalize all drugs like Portugal did and see the billions in savings each year in prison costs and watch the tax dollars roll in as drug use drops.

    Q: Why is meth so popular?
    A: Because safer drugs like marijuana are so expensive.
    Q: Why is marijuana so expensive?
    A: Because of the War on Drugs.

    Another contributing factor was laws were passed while it was still available in bulk at any store in the country, then blasted all over the news, "you can make a drug called meth with this and it is on the shelves at the Dollar Store, Convenient store and WalMarts near you. Recipes are readily available online."

    Why on Earth are people still trying this drug?
    Didn't they watch the 'After School Special?'
    New users are still trying this filthy drug, even though they know it will most likely end with a high speed chase from the cops, sex with a zombie, some sort of armed robbery, a lightning bolt tattoo on your face...all in one weekend.
    Natural selection at work, right before your very eyes.

    They made pseudoephedrine illegal in many states, including here in Oregon, years ago. The stuff they use to replace it is makes a dirtier product which is even more damaging and harmful.

    It is primarily the drug companies that produce pseudoephedrine-based cold medicine that do not want it made prescription only. They are concerned about profits, not crime or public safety.

    Are we saying that Big Pharma is promoting pseudoephedrine-based cold medicine (and the production of meth), which the later is bad stuff and fighting the legalization of Marijuana, which is the good stuff? And they're doing it all for their own profits? In America?
    Who would have thunk it!

    What's the gun saying? guns don't kill people, people kill people. Pseudoephedrine cures runny noses . Hill Billy's cooking. pseudoephedrine into meth kills people.
    Do these people want to take away my rights to reduce my use of Kleenex. Another freedom lost.
    TN has an easiy faked drivers LINC
    according to a Politix topic yesterday where they described how fake linc were enabling straw buyers a to buy 100's of boxes.
    Amazing how similar the crime of straw gun biy circumstances are, and their legislature is concerned about Muslim foot baths/ mop sinks.

    Meth can be made from a number of regular items off the shelf. Just legalize all drugs and you don't have to worry about anyone having illegal drugs.

    In Ky., My observation is that prescription meds (OXY, etc.) are FAR more harmful to innocents than Meth heads... When a Meth head runs out of the drug, they gripe a little, then fall asleep for a couple days. When a person PHYSICALLY ADDICTED to a substance (OXY, HEROIN, etc.) they go into withdrawal; a painful experience. Withdrawal sickness leads addicts to crimes of desperation (robbing old people of their money, meds., etc.) to stave off the sickness... usually, they are more about "not being / getting sick" and less about getting high. Not to mention that the crap being made in soda bottles is a far cry from pharmaceutical Methamphetamine; hence "Meth Mouth" etc. from the battery acid, lye and so on they HAVE TO USE to make the stuff, because clean precursors have been made illegal or impossible to get. Like putting a Band-Aid on a broke leg, really...

    Meth is hard to synthesize from other substances, and there are comparable decongestants that are just as cheap and not as prone to abuse; why not make this change to fix a serious problem?
