Matthew Givens Dennis, I spoke before a high school class once, and the kids hit me as hard on drugs as you are. One kid first admitted that he’s used drugs, then said that they should be illegal to stop people from using them. Now think about that… the laws didn’t stop him, but he thought they’d stop others.If somebody wants drugs today, he or she can get them. Period.
@Matthew Givens – I wasn’t born yesterday – I know how it all works – I’m just saying – it doesn’t have to be made so easy – and when kevin and his other right wing friends were complaining about certain medications being taken off the shelf or regulated – because some of the ingredients are used to make meth and other drugs … it would seem – right wingers wouldn’t want to spend their money on taking care of all of these babies with withdrawals – and having these same babies grow up to be menaces to society. UNLESS there is just double standards and hypocrisy …. as usual in the right wingers mentality ……10 hours ago · Like
Dennis, our point is that there are other ways to deal with issues besides immediately placing limits and restrictions on everybody in the country. Limit access to cough medicines (COUGH MEDICINES, for crying out loud!), the patriot act with easier to get secret warrants to fight terrorism, indefinite detention, and now the President can kill any American citizen he wants without going to court. All these infringe on individual rights in the name of a greater good. And all of them are wrongs that we should not allow. There are other ways to achieve these goals, and in a free society, those other ways should be used.54 minutes ago · Like
@Matthew Givens – if ingredients in cough medicines allow people to open up meth shops all over the place – you are FOR THIS ? are you saying they should put the stuff back on the shelves and not watch people who buys 100’s of bottles of it ? I see you are like most right wingers – can, don’t and won’t STAY ON ONE POINT AT A TIME …… you keep wanting to throw many other points and topics in … .to only cause confusion – instead of DISCUSSING the foundation of THE TOPIC …50 minutes ago · Like
It’s cough medicine, Dennis. COUGH MEDICINE. The fact that some people misuse it means that all must suffer? This is a position taken by left wingers and right wingers alike… though on different issues. Those like me… not, Dennis, NOT “conservative”, NOT “right-winger”, libertarians… we understand that one-size-fits-all solutions by government are really only good for one thing: increasing government power and control.46 minutes ago · Like

Matthew Givens Okay Dennis, I’m glad one word gave you the mystical power to see deep into my mind and know my every thought, wish, and desire. It must be nice to be God.But let’s look at this seriously. Do you honestly think banning cough medicines with psuedo-ephedrine entirely will stop meth production? You are aware that production has already moved to Latin America, aren’t you? Sort of outside any laws we may make? And here’s the key: does restricting access to cough medicines for every citizen reduce meth USE? The answer, so far as I have been able to determine, is no. Why not? I direct your attention again to Latin America and other areas outside our laws where the drug can be made.
Our main supplier used to be Mexico, not it’s Argentina. If Argentina cracks down on ephedrine and such, who will pick up the slack? Somebody will, because there’s an incredible amount of money to be made.
Now, how much freedom will you give up to… not affect meth use at all?37 minutes ago · Like
Dennis C. Latham @Matthew Givens – making it MORE COMPLICATED for people to just walk into a store –
to buy up all the cough medicine –
1.) will allow people who need it – to be able to buy it … so when that person is sick – they can get medicine.
2.) It will stop potential street drug manufacturers from being able to get their ingredients EASILY
3.) It will complicate some of these new meth houses from starting up
4.) There are more benefits ….. than harm being done here.29 minutes ago · Like
Before these laws started getting passed in Alabama, I had no problems finding cough medicines in the stores when I needed it. As to the rest of your points, they deal with meth PRODUCTION. You can knock out production all you like, but meth USE doesn’t decrease just because the stuff is being made in Argentina.Why feel morally superior because we made our addicts buy imported drugs? They’re still buying and using the stuff, so the gain here is ephemeral at best.
Is our problem meth PRODUCTION or meth use? Keep in mind that the use will still happen whether it’s made here or in Argentina. So, what’s the bigger problem?23 minutes ago · Like

meth ? Those productions probably didn’t start in america – but it has gotten to america – and it’s running rapid.
cough medicines ? the FDA approves ALL of that – do they not ?
Should not it be the job of Government to regulate where products are made from ?
I wish you were more SPECIFIC …. because I know too much about these matters and many other matters.
at the same time ? I do have solutions to many of these problems that are not being addressed correctly.
“” Sort of outside any laws we may make?””
if anything bad is made outside of this country – then america needs to put tighter securities on importing and exporting …. just as it is not right for other countries to ship bad things into America – it is also not right for america to ship bad things to other countries.
“” And here’s the key:””
ok … this I gotta see …..
“” does restricting access to cough medicines for every citizen reduce meth USE?””
YES – it does – because if people can’t get to it as easily – there will be less of it.
If it’s not there to use – how can you use something that is not there ?
“” The answer, so far as I have been able to determine, is no.””
The answer is no to you – because you have your mind made up and like a right winger – you ain’t backing down or changing … because you think your plan is PERFECT because you think your freedoms are being violated.
“” Why not? I direct your attention again to Latin America and other areas outside our laws where the drug can be made.””
which drug ? psuedo-ephedrine ??? meth ??? cough medicine ??
“”Our main supplier used to be Mexico, not it’s Argentina. If Argentina cracks down on ephedrine and such, who will pick up the slack? Somebody will, because there’s an incredible amount of money to be made.””
then you need to look at the fda – for allowing it to be put into cough medicines …..
since America is so hell bent on not using what GOD has already made as a cure ….
I don’t see right wingers fighting for NATURAL CURES ……
“”Now, how much freedom will you give up””
I’ve given up a lot of FREEDOMS to help others be FREE ,,,,,, so I don’t mind – and I am still FREE to do any and everything that I want – because what I want ? IS GOD’S WILL to be done.

Dennis C. Latham @Matthew Givens “”Before these laws started getting passed in Alabama, I had no problems finding cough medicines in the stores when I needed it.””which cough medicines is this ? I don’t use it – hardly ever have a need for it – I haven’t had a cold in over 11 years. I do know – about what has been taken off the shelf – and I also know that the fda will put drugs on the shelf – and then take them back off – after so many people have been killed by the drugs.
“” As to the rest of your points, they deal with meth PRODUCTION.””
YES and NO – they do more playing with it – that dealing with it.
“” You can knock out production all you like, but meth USE doesn’t decrease just because the stuff is being made in Argentina.””
It would DECREASE if America would stop allowing it into the country …..
you do know there are well over 2,000 law enforcement agents under investigation for helping to start drug houses in America right ?
“”Why feel morally superior because we made our addicts buy imported drugs?””
why allow it into this country ? don’t they stop nuclear weapons from being imported into this country ?
or would you like that to be allowed into this country too ?
“” They’re still buying and using the stuff, so the gain here is ephemeral at best.””
Whilst you focus on people buying and using it – why not focus on stopping it from reaching the streets ?
“”Is our problem meth PRODUCTION or meth use?””
it’s BOTH ….. there is a problem with BOTH using and making and selling it.
“” Keep in mind that the use will still happen whether it’s made here or in Argentina.””
not if it is STOPPED at the borders – and wiped off the streets …..
can we get our hands on nuclear weapons ?
“” So, what’s the bigger problem?””
you attempting to TWIST it the wrong way – to cover up THE TRUE WAY.
Matthew Givens Okay Dennis, let’s play it that way.
“I am not GOD.” – Really? Your ability to tell me what I really think and feel is pretty omniscient-sounding, as is your willingness to declare certain things with certainty.
“I LOVE how you attempt to turn this to usage and not the manufacturing… it’s evil and wicked to use deceptions – just for the record….” — Like this one. So I’m evil, wicked, and deceptive, am I? Okay, let’s look at a hypothetical, here.
Let’s say I made a ton of meth. You’re saying that is wicked and evil in and of itself, totally divorced from anybody using it. Okay, let’s totally divorce the production from the use. After I make the stuff, I load every last grain of it into a rocket and launch it into the sun. Now, tell me how the production of that meth was evil. Go ahead, try… I’m very interested in reading this.
My point is that the production CANNOT be divorced from the use, because production by itself isn’t evil. Is the construction of a nuclear weapon evil? I say no, but the use of it to kill millions could easily be.
“I said NOTHING about banning cough medicines – that’s that right wing delusions working your mind.” — I know you didn’t, child, I was carrying the “limit access” to it’s logical, though extreme, conclusion. If LIMITING access to the meds were to reduce meth labs, then banning the drugs entirely would surely eliminate the labs altogether. Let me use your own arguments: “How can you be so evil and wicked as to approve of SOME meth labs, when you could eliminate them all merely by banning the cough medicine?” (grin) See how easy that is? And see how ridiculous it is, as well.
“The production of what? meth? Those productions probably didn’t start in america – but it has gotten to america – and it’s running rapid.” — You’re cute. Yes, meth production in Argentina supplying users in the US has exploded. If you removed each and every domestic meth lab, supply would not decrease at all. That’s why I was bringing up meth USE… because if you’ve eliminated every local meth lab but use hasn’t decreased, you have accomplished nothing.
“if anything bad is made outside of this country – then america needs to put tighter securities on importing and exporting” — Heh… this one made me laugh for quite a while. My understanding it that the US is ALREADY trying to reduce drugs smuggled into the country, and not having a great deal of success at it. And note that illegal drugs are NOT “imported” into this country, in the sense of legal importation where “tighter securities” would have an effect. No, they are SMUGGLED into this country, deliberately side-stepping those securities. We have a nice, big, open border through which to smuggle the stuff.
I asked: “Does restricting access to cough medicines for every citizen reduce meth USE?”
And you answered: “YES – it does – because if people can’t get to it as easily – there will be less of it.
If it’s not there to use – how can you use something that is not there?” — Here’s the source of your logical fallacy. Restricting access to cough meds doesn’t mean that access to meth is restricted. Because of producers outside the scope of US laws, the overall SUPPLY of meth hasn’t dropped. So even though we have these restrictions on cough meds, supply isn’t affected, so your answer is wrong. Meth use does NOT decrease, because overall supply of meth is NOT reduced. There’s a lot of money in selling drugs, and that means people will always be wiling to make the drugs to sell here.
“which drug ? psuedo-ephedrine ??? meth ??? cough medicine ??” — You’re being willfully obtuse here. I was making the same point I made in this post. Supply of meth isn’t reduced by restricting access to cough medicines, no matter how RIGHTEOUS you are about it.
“then you need to look at the fda – for allowing it to be put into cough medicines …..
since America is so hell bent on not using what GOD has already made as a cure ….
I don’t see right wingers fighting for NATURAL CURES …..” — Wait, meth is being put into cough medicines? Who knew? (grin) So your solution is that medicines (such as psuedo-ephedrine) that effectively treat symptoms cannot be put into OTC medications at all if somebody can make an illegal drug out of them? Just want to make sure that’s what you said… because earlier you said you HADN’T advocated banning psuedo-ephedrine cough medicines. But if you’ll look carefully, that’s precisely what you advocated here.
As to natural cures, many are available over the counter and even in the back yard. What’s to fight for?
“It’s not really meth use – it’s the making of the meth – but I LOVE how you attempt to turn this to usage and not the manufacturing….” — Okay, here you’ve said it, and you’re on the record. You don’t care if every citizen in the US uses meth, because it’s not the use of meth that bothers you. Only the MAKING of meth bothers you… by your own statement. Glad you cleared that up.
You have the right to voluntarily surrender any freedom you wish for any reason you wish. But tell me, what gives you the right to take away the freedom of OTHERS? Awww… and you say you’re not God…25 minutes ago · Like

Matthew Givens ust to close this out, let me give you this video. It covers a similar situation, where the government declared iodine a controlled substance because it was being used in meth labs, therefore shutting down at least one small business run by an 80+ year-old man. In the video, you’ll hear a quote using government data to tell you how all these efforts are impacting distribution and usage of meth.
“The Justice Department’s own National Drug Assessment for 2011 said that the availability of methamphetamine was increasing in every region of the country, and the rates of abuse were increasing as well.”
So maybe their efforts to restrict access to cold medicines and water purifiers like Polar Pure doesn’t actually work to limit how much meth reaches the streets. Maybe? The government says so. And we trust the government, don’t we?
Dennis C. Latham @Matthew Givens – I will looked at your video – although I see RIGHT THROUGH it …. the only way to stop the users is keep it out of the country -As to the to highly educated couple ? All the money they were making – they could have done many things to track who was buying – electronically – and a list could have EASILY been sent to the authorities …..You do know- they watch fertilizer too ….. fertilizer is used to make bombs …. see.. I have solutions – but you only want to complain, cry and whine ….. I’m about solutions.The couple in this gave up – and not everything that the reporter and the people interviewed is true.
Matthew GivensDennis, the war on drugs was started based on the assumption that attacking the supply and jailing users would work… it hasn’t. The war on drugs has been going on for over 40 years, and usage is up, not down. More drugs than ever are sold on the streets, and our jails are full of people who all they ever did was use a drug. At what point do we evaluate our efforts and decide that what we are doing IS NOT WORKING?There are other avenues to take, but I have to be honest and say that if you view victory as nobody in this country making, importing, selling, or using illegal drugs, then it simply isn’t possible. Human nature argues against it… somebody will ALWAYS take the risk.Now, are you ready to look at our lack of progress in our long “war on drugs” and decide that it isn’t working? If not, why bother detailing alternatives when you’re stuck on the whole military-style attack on drugs?For my mind, we have far too many innocent bystanders being hurt, or as the DEA refers to them, collateral damage. It’s time to re-assess and try a different tack. If you agree with that, then we can start discussing alternatives. Until then, it’s pointless.6 minutes ago · Like
