I live in meth central. For several years, the law has been that you just can’t buy more than 3 at a time; the packages were still out on the shelves. It didn’t help. I think people were just sweeping the shelves clean and running. So they’re trying something else.
No, it’s not convenient, but neither is finding children living in hellishly filthy meth labs, or cleaning up the toxic messes that cookers dump anywhere they please. So I can’t blame them for trying to slow the manufacturing.
Hey, at least you don’t live in Denmark. When I lived there 15 years ago, you had to go to an official pharmacy (not a grocery store or something) for everything, even aspirin, and it was all behind the counter, and they had regular shop hours.
BTW, I remember a while back there was a thread asking about meth effects/disease and so on. Last week I found some answers to that question: look here on the “info” page for long-term effects, and the “gallery” for some photos chronicling what it does to people. From last week, an article showing some lab busts, effects on cookers in large labs (brought from Mexico illegally, they die in about 5 years), and children in homes. This is the local free weekly paper, the one that would carry the SD and Brezny’s astrology etc.
