    No one has to take Meth. Do they? Supply and demand.

    Giving up over the counter medicine does nothing for what is trafficking in from other countries. And will NEVER do anything against the individual kitchen cooks.

    That's why the "behind-the-counter law" was such a joke.

    He is illegal and a flight risk!!!! If he got out he would probally end up in Mexico with that former marine.

    "A Seven Springs man..." Probably not.

    >>2 million is ridiculous for those crimes he is accused of.

    My thought exactly. I'd revoke bond altogether.

    DrJ-well said.

    The speed and that meth, crack, and heroin destroys families and entire communities is devastating.

    2 million is ridiculous for those crimes he is accused of. He is being made a scapegoat for problems in our society that he did not cause and jailing him will not fix. Real problems and real criminals will go untouched.

    I thought by giving up over-the-counter cold medication this kind of stuff would stop:
