Allergy sufferers give thanks

Letters to the Editor

Carmen Johnson
I applaud our state representatives for rejecting legislation that would have blocked everyday, law-abiding citizens’ affordable access to cold and allergy medicines containing pseudoephedrine. Not long ago, state legislators were considering implementing burdensome legislation to require a doctor’s prescription for over-the-counter cold and allergy medicines that many Oklahomans, myself included, depend on.

I am neither a pastor, priest, monk, Jewish or any of these things, but I am a man who has probably broken every law God has placed up this world. And it has, without a doubt, one way or another, caused me to see me as I am and was, and change did come.
