Is Tracking Sudafed A Patriotic Act?
Sudafed and its generic equivalent pseudoephedrine are key ingredients in the illegal manufacture of meth. The relatively new database of Sudafed users is part of the government’s war on drugs, and became law as a rider to the renewed Patriot Act.
If you read this blog regularly, I am sure you can guess how I feel about this. Rather than give my opinion, however, you can read the pros and cons here.
Apparently, some pharmacies have stopped selling Sudafed rather than deal with the information gathering required by law.
