Bureaucratic Mess

What a joke! I can't buy an effective decongestant without some stupid immigrant pharmacy clerk treating me like a criminal at CVS. I have to provide my driver's license and can't get a discount on a large supply because they no longer sell large supplies.

This is just the bureaucracy looking to take more profit from a business. Put this stuff back on the shelf and spend your damn police time going after the criminals who abuse the product!

Why does the government think we are all junior G men? It is not the responsibility of the citizens to monitor drug traffic or collect taxes without compensation.

Only the CIA and Mossad are allowed to profit from "illegal" drug, cultivation, harvest, & distribution...as well as reaping in huge monies on the enforcement end through asset forfeitures and other theft of private property. Great going guys to "stick it" to CVS and the legal departments make a few cool million. See you all in hell you slimy worms.

Decriminalize all drugs and their usage. End the Federal Reserve Banking/zionist theft and dissolution of America.

what a load of crap...the people buying the stuff at CVS are producing a lot LESS meth...they are just small time producers...crack down on them and it is just going to come in bigger-time from other countries. We are always going to have junkies...it is never, ever, never, ever going to go away. Just legalize it, tax it, and let the chips fall where they may. Why does the government play the charade that they 'care' about our health? They don't. By the way, who gets the $75 million??

Plus, it messes it up the masses who need cold medicine legitimately because of a few idiots...do you stop selling glue because a few idiots sniff it?? CVS is being used as a martyr.

Unfair punishment. Someone needs to fine Bush and Obyango for not deporting illegals.

CVS, Official Supplier to meth labs and meth heads Everywhere.

They just got caught and are just giving up the profits that they made as part of the Meth Food Chain.

Corporations -- evil, greedy AND stupid.
