Why should the majority of people in this state, who do not use, buy or sell meth, have to pay for a small minority who use this stuff? At what point can law abiding citizens stop paying for the mistakes of others?
And while this state is suing the Federal government to stop Obama-care, complaining that it is too expensive, they don’t care that this new restriction will be a heavy medical burden on people who simply have a cold.

According to The Wichita Eagle, there is already and tracking system for theseproducts and limits on how much a person can buy. The state stops a buyer for more than 3.6 grams for a single purchase or more than 9 grams in 30 days. Claritin-D, Zyrtec-D and Advil Cold are some of the most common products that contain pseudoephedrine. Opponents of this new bill warn of government going into our medicine cabinets. The Republicans have complained for the last three years of government getting into our health care. Now is the time for them to put up or shut up.
