74% of Mississippians oppose Sudafed restrictions

As Mississippi threatens to become the second state to defy federal law by requiring a prescription to buy over-the-counter pseudoephedrine allergy drugs, a rare poll has been released to gauge public support.

This survey conducted by David Binder Research says 74% of Mississippi voters believe this prescription requirement would create an "unnecessary burden" on law-abiding people. It would create not just an inconvenience, but it would also drive up the cost and hurt the state's finances.

At a time when health care reform should be on the front burner, Mississippi lawmakers are actually trying to make medicine even more costly - even though 74% of the state's voters oppose their effort!
