Ah, The Nanny State

Ashley came down with a horrible head cold today, so I headed out early to try and grab her some Sudafed. No, not Sudafed PE (which doesn’t work), Sudafed. Not only were all the pharmacies closed at 8am, no one at either Longs or Safeway apparently has the authority to allow you to purchase Sudafed, despite the fact that it’s a non-perscription drug. The reason? Federal legislation that requires you to show ID to purchase drugs containing pseudoephedrine, all in the name of reducing the illicit production of crystal meth.

Sigh, I am getting sick of the Nanny State.
