The Des Moines Register’s Reader’s Watchdog tells the rather predictable tale of anti-meth zealotry run amok, as a 50-year-old farmer’s wife faces trial for buying too much pseudoephedrine at a Walgreens in the small town of Ottumwa, Iowa. Of note, even though she bought a lot of allergy pills, she actually didn’t break Iowa law. Yet she could still face a 25-year sentence for a conspiracy “with one or more persons to manufacture, deliver or possess with intent to deliver ... a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine.”
Well, you know. She didn't actually break the law... but the Authorities (TM) think that she might. So she's arrested and charged anyways.
You don't have a problem with that, do you? Because you know... having a problem with that isn't against the law.
Just like buying allergy medicine isn't against the law.
You know what you can still buy without getting arrested, don't you?
