Hey "Packing Heat".......make up your mind which side of the fence you are going to sit on......you cuss and belittle people on these forums for disagreeing with Scott Walton, and you very obviously are a Walton supporter in every way, but you posted that you don't think the now dead meth bill would assist in the fight against meth. Read this news story, where your buddy Walton is quoted as fully supporting the bill. As previously stated, by a number of folks, your credibility is gone now because it seems like you have no idea where you stand on any issue, except to bash people that are unhappy with the present sheriff. This meth bill was the best chance we've had in years to make a major dent in meth production...Make up your mind Packing Heat.....or is that possible?

This is still alive but will be attached to another Bill to get it passed. I spoke with Representative Sherrer and that is the plan.

Nothing would change if you use the same medicine in Gel Cap or Liquid form. Now if you want to make meth (Dry Tablets) then you will have to go the doctor first. The Bill really is that simple. I have the law broke down with other news about this on my web site www.VoteNoMeth.com . We just started the digital sign and we could use everyones support. Tell your church,club,Facebook,Twitter and quick. We may have a week or two to call and E mail the capital to support the "Dry Tablet Meth Bill". I can be reached through my web site. David Starkey

Your all Barking up the wrong tree.
Meth Is big business,Government fabricated meth crimes are turning big profits for crooked politicians who line their pockets from skimming funding and recieving kick backs from county drug court programs,task force programs,pill lobbyiest,treatment centers.
It will never stop unless the production of pseudoephedrine is halted completely.
The government doesn't want to stop it just control it.
With that being said Tri-hist (horse anthistmine)has become the most popular choice to make meth.

Forget it....you can't fix it because it's so broke....the politicians are all crooked....the cops are all crooked....everyone gets kickbacks.....that is exactly what the meth makers of Oklahoma want everyone to hear and think so nothing will be done to slow down their business. If you believe crap like that, then hopefully your family member is not the next victim of meth, or your home is not the next door kicked in by an addict trying to feed the habit....

They did fly a big lobbyist in from DC to run all of these false ads. If we get everyone to help on this we will have a great shot.

I was a victim of meth,Brought on by my own making, I'm fortunatly a surviver tho,Been clean from all substances for 5 1/2 yrs.
Its is big government business,If they found pseudoephedrine laced products to be sooooooo dangerous, enough to place a limit on the boxes one can buy,well in my book that makes pseudoephedrine a controlled substance. How many other controlled substances have you seen that can be purchased without a prescription?
Meth the way this country is experiencing it,is nothing more than Government fabricated crimes aimed at its own people.
They know how to stop it, but wont,whats that tell you?
It just got out of hand so they limit the pills one can buy,made data bases so they can track people who buy. They dont even want to catch these tweekers in the act,because then the gov has to pay for the clean up etc,so they just control the problem by arresting small groups of people on indictments,brought on by searching pseudo records at the pharmacies. In the mean time 1000's of lbs of meth waste gets thrown by the wayside for the next guy to clean up. As long as pseudoephedrine laced products are easily available to the general public,there will be tradgeties.

This Bill is exactly like Oregon's. They went from 600 meth labs to 6 the next year so this works. Now all that id needed is public pressure to the capital. I have it linked from my web site. Watch the bottom 3 videos of the guy who blew off his face and lived. He speaks about the dangers of meth and it is a powerful message. I am going to fly him in to help get this passed. He does hour long presentation so that is my Monday project. I also plan to take him door to door at the capital asking them to pass this Bill.

I really need everyone to but my link on their Facebook, Twitter, Churches and so on. If think people cannot bring change if they work together for a common goal and take action, then turn on CNN. Look at the middle east and if they can do that then a bunch of Okies can send some E mails to stop the meth.

Glad to hear you have beaten the odds, Aunt Hydrous. Keep up the good work-I know it isnt easy. I have a good friend that is doing the same thing.

I think you make a good point about getting rid of it altogether. We lived without it before...look at all the heartache brought on by meth. The painful truth is people who feel the need to fill their life with a chemical will find something else...

Here is the guy that we are flying in to speak. I do not know anyone that would not take a gel cap to stop this meth. I really think we should ask the Speaker of the House why he refused to bring this to a vote and if he took any money from the drug companies.

Congress is very corrupt and you know he takes money from the drug companies.
We need to remove all the current Congress and replace all of them.
