Benitez suggested that the state pass a law requiring a prescription for anyone under age 18 for a cough medicine ingredient after seeing a 14-year-old have a seizure from overdosing on Coricidin, a common over-the-counter cold medicine. He then heard of other problems, including a 14-year-old having a mild attack, again due to an overdose.

"It's not just a passing fad," Benitez said. "It's in every community."

I'm getting sick of saying this but...
MAKE ASPIRIN PRESCRIPTION ONLY!! IT KILLS THOUSANDS OF TIMES MORE PEOPLE THAN CCC EVER WILL!!

Thank You.


AA's message: Join us or you will die, go to jail, or go insane. Friendly folk, right?

Reject the disease theory of addiction propagated by these AA front groups:
1. American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM)
2. National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD)
3. National Association of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC)


12-step based programs have a 93% stranglehold on drug treatment in America. Brave are those who stand up to the monopoly. Agent Orange goes above and beyond:

ugh, don't make asprin prescription only, I love that stuff.

Just educate people on the correct way of using it.

Why should those of us who use these drugs safley have to pay for the idiocy and ignorance of others?

This proposed law will not end up being passed. The most that will happen is they could require CCC to be put behind the counter.


In an age of nothing, at a time when we stand at the brink of our own destruction:
-- Strengthen your belief in yourself, in the future of humanity, in the things of this world which cannot be easily perceived.
-- Awaken that which lies dormant now withen your soul.
-- Re-ignite the flame of your consciousness and measure the strength of your conviction.
-- Reveal the lie.
-- Renounce your hatred.
-- Seek, find, and embrace the truths you are fortunate enough to discover. Cherish them, use them to anchor you in the sea of chaos that is the world we live in.

When twilight draws near, when you are pushed to the very limits of your soul, when it seems that all you have left are the dead remnants of the fabric of your life:
-- BELIEVE

Yea, this is ridiculous. There is no way in hell the FDA would consider doing anything nearly as drastic. I don't think this person realizes how big of a deal this would be.

Some things to note from DXM trying to be restricted in different states....

North Dakota once attempted to pass legislation for DXM as well. It was rejected.

Texas has tried passing a law to restrict the sale of DXM; it is still "In-Committee" and has not been taken action on in a long time. Quite an intresting bill.

Under Utah state law, 23-13-17, [amended] concerning dextromethorphan you must be 18 years old of age to purchase or possess dextromethorphan. It is also illegal as a misdemeanor to use dextromethorphan for recreational use under Utah state law IC-196-E945.4. A level one misdemeanor is punishable by up to 90 days in prison and/or a $1,000 fine.

peace,
Nitin
