With all respect, I still think that prescription for pseudoephedrine is not be a good decision, unless this meth-resistant product, Zephrex-D, gets an exemption rapidly, so that people will not pay a higher price (doctor's visit) for their cold, allergy and asthma medication based on ephedrine. The new generation of products that can't be turned into meth is very promising: http://ephedrinewheretobuy.com/ephedrine-for-sale-over-the-counter-again
Another meth-resistant product will arrive soon: Nexafed, made by Acura Pharmaceuticals. Let's hope that both Zephrex-D and Nexafed will be comparable to the standard ephedrine-based medications in terms of price and effectiveness.5 months ago
They were making meth with children around, can you believe that?!
Makes me so angry..
Guess what kind of life these people had and what's next... Meth is really a plague. It is so dangerous by itself (explosion, addiction etc) but the main issue is that quite anybody can produce small quantities with these “shake-n-bake” or “one pot” methods. Let's hope that the new generation of meth-resistant pseudoephedrine will make it impossible for meth cooks to produce locally, probably meth will come from other sources such as Mexico or Colombia but at least no more risks for kids, neighbors, drug agents etc: http://ephedrinewheretobuy.com/ephedrine-sold-over-the-counter-a-political-fiction
Any step making it harder for meth cooks goes in the right direction, but some steps are bigger than others! I prefer by far this kind of progress (science) to any new law: what could a law do to fight meth?7 months ago
I discussed this issue several times with friends (mainly physicians): we are sure that such prescription law will put an unfair burden on honest patients who will have to spend time and money for their cold, allergy and asthma medication, unless this new meth-resistant product gets exemption rapidly, and considering all consequences we doubt that officials will give a postive answer within months: http://ephedrinewheretobuy.com/ephedrine-sold-over-the-counter-a-political-fiction
So the result will probably be that, again, law-abiding people will have to pay for a minority of drug addicts...
