Big Brother strikes again.

From the HealthDay Reporter:

"Under the USA Patriot Act, any drug containing pseudoephedrine must be kept under lock and key starting Sept. 30 [2006]. That means consumers won't be able to find the drugs on store shelves; instead, they'll have to ask a store employee for the drug, show identification, and sign a sales log. Some states, such as Oregon, are adopting even tougher laws, requiring prescriptions for drugs containing pseudoephedrine. The law is designed to make it more difficult for people to get their hands on pseudoephedrine to make methamphetamine."

That is complete bullshit.
