Great, Now when I get a cold I will get treated like a criminal. Why should the government have any so in how much cold medicine I buy? What's next a restriction on how much antacid or toothpaste I buy?

Why isn't this same data base used to track pain medication abuse. It should help control people going from Dr. to Dr. for pain prescriptions I would think.

If the laws limiting access to Pseudo-Ephedrine and this database 'cost me nothing', can you please explain why Pseudo-Ephedrine prices have more than tripled since the laws limiting daily and monthly amounts have been put in place?
And Meth is still a problem -- the laws limiting access to Pseudo-Ephedrine have done nothing! How will this database help? Is the database going to go out and arrest people? Meth users buying Pseudo-Ephedrine are alread _very_ easy to spot. Law enforcement already has the means to crack down on Meth use if they are inclinded to do so.

Now if they will just start giving drug tests to people on welfare and food stamps they will save alot of money! I have to test to go to work to make money for the system so they can get thier money and they don't have to test! That is CRAZY!!!

Always another excuse to creep more and more into our lives. The meth heads are the useful idiots for power hungry statists.

Penny, I came on here to make the exact same comment! Something should have been done about prescription drug abuse LONG ago, and a nation or statewide database is such a simple solution. I don't have any statistics handy (and am too lazy to go look right now!) but I would imagine the the abuse of LEGAL narcotics is more prevalent than meth-yet they do nothing about it.

I do not understand why there are laws limiting the purchases of over the counter drugs anyway. People use sugar to illegally make distilled spirits. Should the government regulate sugar?

It is time to tell the government to butt out.

obviously none of yall have been paying attention t the serios meth problem that Sand Mountian is having..hell they even had an A&E series about it. meth is a serious problem in this county an i think that anything that the goverment can do to help prevnt met lab after meth lab producingand selling meth to ou community the better. an if they wanna ask me to see id my id and run it through a database then thats fine as well...and ad far as worrying about it whn you have a cold, how many bottles of Pseudo-Ephedrine do you need to buy for a cold?? im sure its not enough for ppl to start thiking of you as a criminal...

I know what it can be used for & how it can effect a person & their family so I have no problem showing my ID to buy it. I will say that if they expect your driver's license to be in perfect condition when you do buy it that they need to stop making them so flimsy. My change pocket in my wallet got so full it creased the corners of my driver's license & they wouldn't sell me any. Wouldn't let me use my passport card either because I'd showed her my driver's license already. You'd think 2 forms of ID would be better than 1.
