Meth labs soar in Kentucky following Sudafed law

Are the drug warriors happy now?

They treat every allergy sufferer as a criminal in the name of fighting drugs, and now their laws have again been proven to have the opposite effect that they predicted.

The number of meth labs found in Kentucky has soared in the past 18 months following passage of new laws to make everyone practically tell their life story just to buy a box of allergy pills at the drugstore. (This of course is an unconstitutional search, but who's counting?)

The ineffectiveness of these laws is underscored by the death of a toddler who drank drain cleaner that was apparently used in a meth lab.

In one part of western Kentucky, the number of meth labs in the first 5 months of the year has increased from 10 to 49 over the same period last year.

If any innocent people who I know are killed by meth labs in Kentucky following this new law, I will be on the drug warriors and our legislators like stink on shit. I'll be on their case anyway. Our lawmakers are supposed to be acting in our interests, yet their policies kill innocent children.

Tell me now who the real baby killers are.

What's the response of officials following the latest spike in Kentucky meth labs? They want even more draconian laws. Of course. Which I guarantee you aren't going to help matters, and will only inconvenience or kill the innocent.

When that fails, bet on even more rigid laws.

This vicious cycle known as the War on Drugs is a price support for violent gangs, and the drug warriors have got to know this by now. Either that, or they're in the worst sort of denial.
