Man arrested for buying allergy medicine 2 years ago

This story shows just how idiotic our drug laws are.

A man in Greenwood, South Carolina, has just been arrested because he purchased too much pseudoephedrine allergy medicine at a drugstore - 2 years ago! He purchased a whopping 5 grams back in 2014. That was enough for him to be entered into the NCIC database - where he languished for 2 years.

Isn't that ridiculous?

The Bush regime's moronic war on pseudoephedrine is a contributing factor to the heroin pandemic of today. All the people who yelled about Sudafed 5 or 10 years ago have blood on their hands now.

It's true when people say it's easier to buy a gun than to buy allergy drugs. That's no exaggeration whatsoever. You can buy 5 guns in a day and you won't be entered into a government database. But you buy 5 grams of Sudafed in a month, and you're done - at least when they get to your case after they deal with all the other frivolous cases like this.
