Just saw on the news this morning...effective today, any cold medicine that contains ephedrine or psuedoephedrine is now to be kept behind the pharmacy counter. To buy any you have to talk to the pharmacist, plus they log who you are and what you buy. They also said that you can only buy like two packages at a time...so no more keeping a stockpile without making multiple trips to different stores. This is supposed to cut down on people making methamphetamines from cold medicine. I don't take cold medicine so this doesn't have an effect on me right now...this would annoy the hell out of me if I did though.
