Quote of the Day 8/19/2013

Requiring a woman to show her identification before purchasing the pill seems designed to intimidate or humiliate consumers.  State legislation requires everyone to show identification to purchase over-the-counter medications that include pseudoephedrine. That’s because it is a key component in making methamphetamine. Requiring consumers to show ID for pseudoephedrine is designed to curtail criminal activity.  State legislation seems to equate the two — contraception and manufacturing drugs.
