    I saw this in the news. The funny part is that we were just at walmart and picked up two packs of pseudoephedrine right off the shelf. In the past few years its been a pain in the ass. You had to get a card from the rack and pick the pseudoephedrine up from behind the counter or pharmacy. You were limited to only one pack and had to show ID to get even that. I was rather surprised it was so readily available again.

    Then this was on the news. I bet walmart pulls it from the shelves again.

    I used to stock pseudoephedrine at the store I worked out, before they started locking it up. I would stock it, and a few hours later the shelf would be empty.

    How about we permit a few SWAT officers' widows to sue CVS for recklessly endangering the lives of their husbands?

    How does CVS selling cold medicine make meth heads "victims?"

    Besides, aren't you the crone who wants to make drugs legal to stop the violence in Mexico?

    What do you think the DOJ is going to pot farms in California if Prop 19 passes?

    What a terrible loss to the field of brain surgery you are, Revere. If meth was legal (what a god awful idea) then it would be manufactured by the Eli Lily Co., not some freak next door to your college kid. There would be no need to buy pseudoephedrine at retail, and CVS would not have made the sales that landed it in hot water with the DOJ.

    This thread is not about legalizing drugs; it is about a Big Business' immunity from suit by those harmed by its reckless and negligent conduct. You want to discuss pot, please start your own thread.

    So the meth dealers forced these "victims" to take the drugs? And its bad that they can't sue the retailers which provide a legal product that the dealers then use as an ingredient?

    Sounds like more of "sue the gun manufacturers" crapola.

    So the problem is with meth is that there isn't more of it, and government doesn't provide it direct to addicts.

    Wow.

    What planet is this?

    What I wonder, is this fine considered "Nanny State?" by the Government?

    Meth cookers destroy homes, endanger the lives and property of neighbors and police and degrade neighborhoods all before any addict ever buys a -- pill, baggie, whatever. The victims are all the people harmed by CVS's negligence and greed -- you can include drug addicts or not in that group. Meh, they're not my first concern.
