Follow doctors' advice on fighting meth

Feb 10, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Lexington Herald-Leader

Kentucky set a record for meth lab discoveries last year - more than 1,000 - despite a drug-industry sponsored system for tracking purchases of non-prescription medicines that contain an essential meth precursor.

Take PSE completely off the market. 99% of the people who buy it are using it for meth production. There are safer OTC medications out there that do the same thing. I don't know if putting it in the hands of local doctors is going to help though. Look how the docs around here write scripts for xanax, klonapin and pain pills?

What's the matter? Scared that your supply is gonna get cut off? The idea of no more "Smurfing" money got you down? Tough shit. There are effective products on the store shelves right now that work just as well, we do not need the other that has been stashed behind the counter.The drug companies are fueling this campaign because they know they are about to lose Billions (capital B) in revenue each year. It has nada to do with doctors and insurance companies wanting to rake in more co-pays, that is ridiculous. People will go to the store just like they always have when they need a decongestant and pick one off the shelf, the same ones that are there now. Get a grip man.

Get rid of it, the only use for it is cooking meth, also stop the doctors from giving out so many pain meds.(And yes I did marry my sister while we were tweeking, but were happy)

Leave the cold medicines ALONE!! Honest people who don't make meth and uses this for what its supposed to be is ones that will suffer. The ones pushing this is the COPS, reason being will make their job just a bit safer, reality they took the job for being a police officer and knew when they accepted that job they would be dangers with the job. Others pushing this is doctors because they stand to make a lot more money if you have to go to them to get a script. Others pushing this is lawyers because of tieing up their time in court with all these meth head cases, again if they the lawyers didnt like what their career consist of find another career, if the courts and judges would enforce laws and sentence these dopers to hard time instead of letting them out time after time we wouldnt be having this discussion. Dope users and makers finds ways around all laws, always have always will. People can help out and be vigilante and report these makers and users, will help clean up alot of it. Do we need legislation to tell us its OK to breathe?

Oh yes... then, we'll have to spend an hour in the doctors office, waiting.....Then, pay an upfront co-pay....then, pay prescription prices, which will make it cost 3 to 4 times as much..........
And the meth people will go on, by getting it somewhere else, or coming up with a substitute for it..... The only people who will suffer, will be the common person, who done nothing wrong.

Yes, it is terrible that people who use the medication correctly can't get it anymore. I am getting over a sinus infection, but was able to find medication that worked well. There are other meds that work just as well or better. Try desensitivation methods for your allergies. One thing that has worked for me is using local honey. The bees polinate what you are allergic to, and by taking small amounts daily you can build up your immune system to what you are allergic to. I think putting up with the inconvience is okay, if it helps to prevent meth labs. There was a good article on msn today about how many of the houses that are up for sale cheap are contaminated. Meth affects us all.

It really affects you. Up in the middle of the night. Does that meth affect your vision? You still can't spell worth a sh!t. Or is it just your IQ?

A few yrs back I had a 19 yr old daughter that was using this crap. Her new BF "told" her she was going to use it so she couldn't snitch on him and his buddies. She had already informed me of what was going on. One evening her and him came out to my house - she staggered in so high that she literally had urinated all over herself and her eyes were so dilated you could tell what color they were. I never knew anyone that was a user nor had I ever seen it before or the behaviors. I informed him very clearly if he ever brought her back to me like that again - he wouldn't live to walk back out my door. I'm very well known here in Glasgow/Cave City/Park City and most people know I am not a person to agitate - a kind & giving lady but can also be your worst nightmare =)- the good ending is he won't be doing anything anytime soon.*Crime Stoppers* is truly a great website! Am I a snitch? No not when it comes to my children or people very dear to me. But if that's what u see me as - so be it.

Yep that's 100% right - all they can do is make it harder to get over the counter here. Some pharmacies in Glasgow tell you that you must have a prescription for it - but all the commercials say otherwise. However they do have the right to with hold it.

other drugs DO NOT WORK AS WELL, i'm tired of hearing that shit, as an allergy and sinus suffer all my life I can tell you that the alternatives do ABSOLUTLY NOTHING for severe congestion maybe you little girls with your little sniffles can be fooled into thinking it's working but it does not. Pseudo is A LEGAL PRODUCT THAT HAS A LEGIT MEDICAL USE I DON"T GIVE A FLIP WHAT SOME USE IT FOR GO AFTER THE DRUGGIES AND LEAVE ME ALONE! TIME FOR THE GOV TO GET THE HELL OUT OF OUR BUSINESS! and the whole doctors prescription thing is a money grab, who pushes for it.... the DR's who stands to make a fortune from it..... suprise DR"S if the cops would stop chasing down billy from down the street and throwing him in prison for smoking a roach in his own home and bothering NO ONE, then THEY COULD GET THE DANGEROUS DRUGS OFF THE STREET! wake up people today allergy medication, next they will outlaw oxygen, did you know enough of it will get you high!!! omg! you must get a DR's note to breathe!

I don't want to fight meth or any other drug! I* want druggies to have unfettered access to them. The faster they kill themselves, the better this world will be.

Drugs aren't the problem. People who take drugs make other bad/immoral/irresponsible/reck less choices in other areas of life as well. Take away the drugs, and they'll still make those same stupid choices in every other aspect of their lives.

The problem ain't the drugs...it's the idiots who use them. Better to get rid of them than the drugs- and that can be accomplished merely by letting the natural consequences of their actions take their course; and is much more fair to the rest of society then treating the average joe like he is a criminal and making us all pay for a penal system whose business is made up primarily by druggies.
