Said Blunt, "Our state's tough anti-meth legislation is making a big difference."

What a crock of crap. The only thing the caught using Sudafed were first time experimenters and dumbasses making enough for their own use. They can do the same thing with a vicks inhaler.
Anyone that has ever cleaned up labs knows the bulk of it is made from medicated salt licks and imported bulk from mexico.

In other news Meth usage by Republican elected officials and party leaders is up 40% !!

Careful anonymous, someone might do a side by side photo comparison and get a real clear picture of where it's up.

I believe I heard a television report this morning, perhaps on KMBC or KCTV, that Missouri ranked first in meth labs.

So Blunt states that his new anti meth law is "making a difference." I beg to differ. While meth producing labs may be fewer, the distribution of the drug is not. Since initiating the crack down, the country of Mexico has just tripled their production of the drug. I surmise it's getting distributed through the cartel. Wake up Blunt. The problem runs much deeper!

And if the number of lab busts went up they'd still claim it as a positive: "we're busting more meth labs than ever! We're winning the War on Drugs!".

aka...your couldn't possibly be more correct. You are absolutely right!

Uh, I believe meth labs have dropped 40% because the FDA now requires all products containing psuedoephedrine, a primary ingredient in meth, to be kept behind the pharmacy counter. Soon he'll be taking credit for green grass and blue skies as well.

Did the city of Independence secede from the State of Missouri?

We are spending an estimated $75 billion per year of public money, and an estimated $70 billion a year from consumers, is responsible for nearly 50 per cent of the million Americans who are today in jail, occupies an estimated 50 per cent of the trial time of our judiciary, and takes the time of 400,000 policemen -- And for what!!
Nixon's war against drugs, and later the Reagan and Bush war against drugs, has only produced a dramatic increase in the number of prisoners in the US and cost the federal & State governments Billions.
After almost 40 years of spending Billions to fight the abuse against drugs you can go to any city in the US and get any drug you want.
The drug laws must be changed if not eliminated. If our Police departments were free from fighting this lost cause they could spend more time fighting the violent offenders. I deplore drug use and I would support the stiffest penalties to selling drugs to a minor but the war has failed and it's time we realize this. All of this money we are spending to fight a lost cause should go towards prevention, addiction treatment,education or national security. Currently all we are doing is throwing money out the window on a war we created. Quit locking people up!!
