Oregon may repeal Sudafed prescription law

The far-right drug warriors cheered back in 2006 when Oregon became the first state to pass a law requiring a prescription for over-the-counter cold and allergy medicine that contains pseudoephedrine. The lying sack of shit media was happy to help the failed drug war cause by falsely claiming that the Republican-backed law reduced the incidence of meth labs. (Oddly enough, the Portland media is so right-wing that it makes the Cincinnati media look like The Last Word in comparison.)

Of course, they clammed up the moment a real drug case fell right in their laps, but that's another matter entirely.

Now there's a bill in Oregon that would repeal the prescription requirement. If it's repealed, it would make Mississippi the last state that requires a prescription for allergy medicine.
