Doing Jobs Americans Won't Do - Meth Edition

Mexican cartels fill demand for meth in USA

From the Detroit Free Press:

Mexican drug cartels are quietly filling the void in the nation's drug market created by the long effort to crack down on American-made methamphetamine, flooding U.S. cities with exceptionally cheap, extraordinarily potent meth from factorylike "superlabs."

Although Mexican meth is not new to the U.S. drug trade, it now accounts for as much as 80 percent of the meth sold here, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration. And it is as much as 90 percent pure, a level that offers users a faster, more intense and longer-lasting high.

Great, so I'm getting carded for buying frickin' Allegra D and prevented from buying a whole season's supply at once supposedly to stop the menace of meth while far purer meth is being shipped in by the ton unaffected by such stupidity. (As an aside - Anyone know if meth made from Allegra D or Sudafed also helps the user with their allergies? Inquiring minds of non-users of meth would like to know).

Can we please end the whole stupid carding and limited purchase charade now, considering that we've now outsourced illegal meth production to Mexico?

Dude, I am so totally jacked up with allergies. Doing the shots and all of that. Still bent that the GOOD OTC stuff was yanked because of this crap.
