Terre Haute News: Wabash Valley woman didn't realize second cold medicine purchase violated drug laws


Long story short: the woman in question bought too much OTC cold meds and was arrested because Indiana’s laws make it illegal for her to do so… to prevent her from opening her own meth lab. The whole ludicrous story is here.1

I shoulda’/coulda’ been arrested myself about 9 months ago. We went to BJs where you can buy DayQuil and NyQuil in large boxes, and guess what? I wanted both! (Who wouldn’t?!) The automatic checkout line cash register refused to sell me the DayQuil after scanning the NyQuil, and only after I argued with it for a bit did someone come and explain the stupid law to me.

That’s when I gave up.

And made a second purchase consisting only of the DayQuil.

Book ‘em, Dan-O!

1Anybody wonder who’s busy tracking what this lady has bought? And how they’re storing that data? And who is getting that data? And what use they might put that data to? If I were a health insurance company, I’d love to get my hands on that data…
