    You can't buy sudafed with pseudoephedrine in it any more. Well, you can but you have to have your ID taken and entered into a log book. I ran all over town trying to find some sudafed for the pregnant wife (pseudoephedrine and tylenol are about the only two things you can take for a cold when pregnant or nursing).

    Since pseudoephedrine is the main ingedient in meth, the goverment (as of July 1 2006) requires you to not buy more than three packages in a 24 hour period, and records your info into a log book. Keep the goods behind the counter too.

    But, like usual, the system is ripe for abuse. Logs are paper, and probably collected or mailed from pharmacies. So you've got plenty of time to gather the ingedients (probably a month or more before they figure you out) and get back to the trailer park.

    Pretty soon I imagine that it will be prescription only.

    Thank you for standing by. Back to your regularly scheduled program.

    Like you said, if you can buy 3 at a time, and the logs are on paper, it seems like a waste of time.

    honest folks suffer the most!..

    Yup--make all the honset people give all their identification,etc--but druggies know how to get around the law--always have,always will..these new laws will only make it harder for honest folks to get the medication--not the dopers!..

    I get spam e-mails daily from drug places wanting to sell me viagra,percocets,vicodin,etc--most are not even in the USA!--and probably will send them to anyone with no background checks or prescriptions!..(I delete them,so i know nothing about how you have to get them thru these places..)..but I bet they sell Sudafed!..

    One rather disturbing thing I heard around my area is people who are rolling their own ciggarettes to save money are being "watched"..It appears the local fuzz are having the conveinience store clerks to keep tabs on who is buying rolling papers, and having them write down their licence plate numbers by viewing the surveillance cameras as they leave!..

    I realize 99% of all rolling papers are used for pot,not ciggarettes,but I feel if they want to catch people smoking it,all they have to do is OPEN THEIR EYES in certain places ,known for its sale and use!!--not act like the gestapo,and have to "spy" on everyone!...my friends 77 year old grandfather was pulled over a while back,and after the usual "do you know why we stopped you" questions,the cops asked him specifically why he was buying rolling papers!..he said "so I can roll my ciggarettes,you nosy *******!!..then he had to SHOW them one,and prove it had tobacco in it...:surepal: --haven't they got bigger fish to fry??..:confused: :dunno:

    I tried to pick up the only Sudafed that is working on my cold.. and BAM.. I learned that it is NOW prescription in Oregon. What a PIA. I don't go the doctor. I don't have a doctor to call for a prescription. I only have catastrophic coverage insurance so I am not going into "Eventual Care" (Immediate Care) at the clinic and pay cash for a prescription for somthing that should be over the counter.

    I am trying a bunch of other combinations and NOTHING is working as good.

    THIS SUX!!!!

    Total waste of effort. The vast amount required too "cook" meth makes buying packages impractical. Most ,meth is smuggled in from Mexico anyways. From what I understand, they are quite a few “recipes” anyways. God, I’m glad I’m done with all that crap !!!!!!

    Wasted too many years of my life on that crap. It was fun at first, but it doesn’t take long till it becomes your whole life. Then it’s all about selling too support the habit. It’s a trick bag. You think you’re making so much money, but it all goes right back into the dope. I made thousands and thousands of dollars, but never had anything too show for it. I’m telling you, I’m so much happier without the dope in my life. I don’t make the big bucks, but I have nice stuff now !!! Wonder why, LOL.
