Do some of the provincial or municipal jurisdictions have stricter controls? Last I checked, Schedule V controlled substances, which includes the weaker Tylenol/Codeine and codeine cough syrups (e.g. Robitussin AC), actually don't require a prescription under Federal drug laws in the States. But the majority of states have their own stricter laws in place about this.

Had this not been the case, I think the Feds would have simply decided that Sudafed would now be a Schedule V controlled substance.

To those in jurisdictions where you need a script to by Sudafed, are they renewable?
