Revised Patriot Act Targets Cold/Allergy Meds

Do you suffer from allergies or take over the counter cold medications when your sick? If so, you may be among the first affected by the bullshit USA Patriot Act, which is up for a final congressional passage this week.
Besides "terrorism", the Patriot Act is aiming at the production of methamphetamines, that cannot be made without the key ingredient of your everyday, over the counter cold & allergy medications. The bill would impose new limits starting next month for how much of these cold & allergy medications one can buy over the counter. One person would be limited to buying 300, 30mg pills in a month. Or 120 pills a day. The measure will make an exception for "single-use" sales-individually packaged pseudoephedrine products.
And beginning September 30th, it will take an I.D. to buy any cold, sinus, or allergy medication! Wal-Mart, Kmart, Walgreens, & Target, already have adopted guidelines to limit customer access to cold products.
