the war on drugs was a way for the powers that be to stop you and get into your business and it should be disband and the laws need to be repealed....if you are not hurting anybody but yourself.. it your biz but if you kill somebody else with your drug use instant on the spot death when proven... but not until proven....that would stop allot of this...

I learned about the Oregon law while I was traveling in the state and suffering from a pretty severe sinus infection. When I asked the pharmacist for some Sudafed he informed me of the law and gave me some advice, which I took. What was that advice? Drive a half mile down the road and buy it from the shop on the Washington side of the border. Like most laws of this type it will only impact those who follow the laws. It may result in fewer meth lab seizures which I know is a politically important metric, however this metric has little to do with actual meth use since a majority of meth is imported from out of state by organizations with little regard for the law. My removing the local competition the effect won’t be lowered meth use but rather it will be higher profits for these smuggling operations and more money sent to other states and countries. Of all of the states to model ourselves after Oregon should be number 62 out of the 49 options. The average standard of living in Oregon aspires to that of the oldest and poorest parts of Tulsa. Their mismatched and half brained laws often leave me scratching my head and wondering if I’ve stepped into the Twilight Zone. Next thing you know we won’t be allowed to pump our own fuel here either.

Legalize weed and other drugs. we already have laws on the books for any crimes some pothead or crackhead commits. but if someone wants to sit at home and smoke something without hurting anyone but themselves then why should we care? and don't say it costs hospitals or childcare etc... Get REAL.. Fat People generate do much more damage with a bag of potato chips than anyone with a bag of sudafed or a bag of weed. Ron Paul 2012 - legalize it

David Starkey doesn't know what he's talking about. I already gave him the facts, but he wants to deny them. FACT: Pseudoephedrine (PSE) is NOT required to make meth. FACT: The DOJ and the DEA say that David is WRONG - gel caps and liquid CAN be used to make meth. FACT: Oregon and MS claim their ban on PSE is working; well, they claimed the same thing about keeping it behind the counter. We all know that was a lie. If they're not looking, then they're not finding meth labs. Hmmm... David has some kind of agenda, since he so vehemently denies facts and pushes for this ordinance. I don't know what it is yet, but I'll find out. It may be that he owns part of the patent on the gel caps, perhaps. Whatever it is, David, I'll find out.

I agree with ZCD73 except for one thing. I have never been charged by any doctor to call something in. This is not something that the doctor must see you over. This kills the argument that it will cost you money for the doctor. The same cold medicine is available in gel caps and liquid with NO PRESCRIPTION required because the druggies cannot make meth out of the liquids. So if you just refuse to take the same stuff in gel cap or liquid the worst that you have to do is call the doctors office and have them call it in for free. After that you can have up to 5 refills so the big question. Would you take a gel cap or liquid to stop the meth in Oklahoma? www.GelCapsStopMeth.com

The average meth lab costs the taxpayers about $350,000.00 to deal with by the time we pay the police, haz-mat crews, prosecuters, DHS workers and the cost of incarceration. Making this a schedule III means that your dr. can call in up to 5 refills before you have to go back and see him. Do the math, you have to go see your dr. 1 time every six months in exchange for seeing our tax dollars spent to clean these toxic meth labs up. I will make the sacrifice, I hope you will. I support House Bill 1235 and I hope everyone else is smart enough to do so as well.

"TurfTamer" ... "It makes sense to think the best way to stop meth use is by limiting the ingredients" ... just how well did that work with prohibition????

Listen, this is not all bad. Lord knows there is no way a criminal can get his hands on a prescription drug. It would also be a good thing if we can get more people going to the emergency room for a prescription. If we lower the supply of meth I'm sure meth users will go get jobs to make sure they can still afford the habit. It makes sense to think the best way to stop meth use is by limiting the ingredients. Once the meth users see this law they will stop. This will drive up health care costs, drive up the cost of Meth too... therefore drive up amount of crime (theft, etc...) need to purchase meth. There is no way a law can stop meth. This does not address the problem at all.
