angelofdeath Posted September 27, 2009 Share Posted September 27, 2009 http://www.tribstar.com/local/local_story_246225916.html i've been a long time sufferer of allergies and sinus problems. when the patriot act was reauthorized, and the over the counter medicine containing the drugs that actually worked a little bit were put 'behind' the counter and you had to surrender your ID and be put on a 'terrorist' watch list to purchase this medicine... some people thought i was an alarmist. they didnt believe it until they went to buy cold medicine. then, i was told that i would never be arrested for purchasing cough medicine, this is america! for shits sake. over the past couple years i've heard of a few arrests, but this one i posted above caught my eye. just a normal family, purchasing cold medicine and they get their door kicked in a few months for having the audacity to purchase medicine that the state dislikes in what they think are inappropriate quantities. yes, the war on drugs is a great great thing, eh? and geez, you will never get arrested for buying cold medicine in america! its crazy to think so! and people wonder why i had other people buy my yearly cold medicine for me because i wouldnt surrender my ID.
