Ok, we'll take him....

So the law that went into effect last September to help prosecute meth manufacturers has caught it's first big fish.

Well, not really a big fish. Kind of a little fish. Well, actually, a plankton in the world of meth dealing.

Yesterday William Fousse was convicted of purchasing 29 grams of Sudafed in a 30 day period.

There was no evidence that Fousse made methamphetamine or turned the medication over to others for its production, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Douglas E. Gregory.

Way to go, guys. That'll help fight the war on drugs. I can already tell the difference.

Ya Know, If the guy had say 4 or 6 kids and they all had colds/allergies/runny noses he would need more than that in a week.

Seems this guy went to jail for having one kid, including himself, that needed allergy medication. Ask me, people who pass laws like this just need to be publicly spanked until they repent. It sure has cut down on meth production in this corner of the world ... NOT! Yours too?

Pathetic.... The War on Drugs is being fought more like the Politician's Senseless Hot Air Effort...

Happy Saturday to you, Monekygirl !

How many grams are in one Sudafed package? I have four kids and a husband, and I am always the one who goes to the store to buy it if we need it. I better look out, or if we all get sick together, I may be arrested! (I am going to read the article you linked right now)

I hate allergy season (which appears to be year-round down here) so MUCH MORE because of this stupid law. I have to dole out my meds carefully lest my children get a cold and I need to buy something OTC for them at the direction of my pediatrician's NP. She won't write a prescription for something for them. Oh no. Must come out of MY one thirty-day supply. Which I really need, you know, for me.

So I run around with a sniffly nose. These lawmakers need to be confined in a pollen-filled room with no kleenex.

And a cat.

I tried to buy cough syrup last winter, a night time, and a day time. You know, one to knock me out so I could sleep through the symptoms, and one that didn't...so you know, I could actually go to work functionally. Makes sense right? Wrong. I could only buy one bottle of cough syrup. Luckily my dad was there, so he just bought the other one. But come on!! That sort of reminds me of another thing too. A friend got caught peeing in an alley while rather intoxicated (a male), and had to register as a sex offender. Another friend of a friend of a friend (so I'm not vouching for accuracy on this one) got caught giving head to her husband while driving, and they both had to register as sex offenders. This is ridiculous! Some day when I have kids and I try to look up sex offenders in my city- I want to know the real stuff. I don't care if some kid peed in an alley, or some wife got a little crazy with her husband. This kind of stuff just dilutes the whole purpose of the law!! Sorry to hijack your comments. Love your blog!

I feel your pain and trepidation!
Everyone in my household has allergies and sinus problems.
Like today, the mold level is so high we are all walking around like zombies with runny noses. We go through so much allegy medication and the other OTC stuff, unleaded, as we call it, just does not cut it!
This law is absolutley ridiculous.
