After a 2005 Indiana law limited how much cold or allergy medicine containing ephedrine or pseudoephedrine an individual could buy, law enforcement saw a decline in homegrown meth labs.
Those cold and allergy active ingredients were commonly used to make methamphetamine.
But meth abuse is still a significant concern.
"Like any other law or tactic, people will find a way around it. Meth has not gone away," Holeman said.Read more »

A video featuring many celebrities has been produced in which they all pledge to do something positive for mankind/the planet/the world/the president.

Ridiculous lesson plan that I assume will be given to teachers in government schools.
"What is the President trying to tell me? What is the President asking me to do? What new ideas and actions is the President challenging me to think about?"

This video was taken on Tuesday, August 25th, 2009 at Rep. Jim Moran’s (D-VA) Town Hall meeting on Obama Deathcare (Howie Dean was there too) held at South Lakes High School in Reston, VA.
Many people were left outside when the school filled to capacity. School security officer Wesley Cheeks, Jr. did not like my anti-Obamacare poster which used one of the gone-viral “Joker” graphics.
When I said to Officer Cheeks, “This used to be America!” his response was: “It ain’t no more, OK?”
No, it’s not.Read more »

I want to be very clear what I mean when I say the word slavery. If you look it up in Webster's dictionary, the first definition is "drudgery or toil." It's become a metaphor for undue hardship, because we assume that once you legally abolish something, it no longer exists. But as a matter of reality for up to 27 million people in the world, slaves are those forced to work, held through fraud, under threat of violence, for no pay beyond subsistence. It's a very spare definition.Read more »
(by Declan McCullagh): Internet companies and civil liberties groups were alarmed this spring when a U.S. Senate bill proposed handing the White House the power to disconnect private-sector computers from the Internet.
They're not much happier about a revised version that aides to Sen. Jay Rockefeller, a West Virginia Democrat, have spent months drafting behind closed doors. CNET News has obtained a copy of the 55-page draft (excerpt), which still appears to permit the president to seize temporary control of private-sector networks during a so-called cybersecurity emergency.
As of September 1, it won’t be illegal to possess flavored cigarettes, but it will be illegal to sell them. As a result, clove cigarettes, which have been imported from Indonesia and sold in the U.S. since 1968, and cigarettes flavors like cherry and chocolate mocha are about to become a controlled substance.
Philip-Morris—the tobacco giant who controls fully half of the U.S. cigarette market share—had its tarry hands all over the passage of this legislation.Read more »
Title says "Cash for Clunkers under budget with 690,000 sales" but one paragraph says "It proved far more popular than lawmakers originally thought. Congress added another $2 billion to the original $1 billion budget when the first pot of money nearly ran out in a week. The extra money was supposed to last through Labor Day, but the funding only lasted about a month."
In other words, it was over budget before it was under budget after they made the budget larger, and even then, it was canceled just enough earlier than planned to keep it from consuming even the second "budget."Read more »
