My local newspaper says that if you have cottonballs and coffee filters in your car, you may be arrested and searched if Representative Brent Yonts- A
Greenville, Ky. Democrat gets his way. He thinks the Kentucky Supreme Courts ruling - a person have everything necessary in his possesion to be a
suspected manufacturer of methamphetamine- is too lenient.
I hate what meth has done to people. Nevertheless, I think this proposed bill goes too far. If there are such serious consequences tied to shopping
at the grocery, we should have shopping lessons and warning labels on everything from cottonballs to coffee filters to pacifiers and a tax on the
manufacturers of such evil goods (sarcasm).
Now I can see shopping lessons in school, college, GED courses and adult education classes on how to make seperate trips for such things. without
such lessons the grocery store could cause you all kinds of problems. I see lawsuits everywhere.
Didn't drug manufacturers sell methamphetamines years ago? I read that housewives and lots of people used to take them. Then the manufacturers
stopped selling them. Could they be held liable for socially addicting our society to such things?
Does the drug war have an exit strategy?
