I want a new drug

Could a state proposal to make pseudoephedrine prescription-only crack down on meth production?


News

Kim Mizar-Stem
Efforts to combat methamphetamine abuse in Oklahoma already have resulted in restrictions on the sale of pseudoephedrine, a chief ingredient in meth. Now, some in the state law enforcement community are hoping to take that battle a step further by making the medicine a Schedule III drug.

Meth is not mirth


Letters to the Editor

Andy Behrens
I must say a few words about your choice of cover for the Jan. 25 issue (News, “I want a new drug”), because I don't think I've ever seen a major publication in our city or state run something so exploitative and repulsive.

If we could anthropomorphize pseudoephedrine, a key ingredient in both allergy medicines and methamphetamine, we think it might be the Road Runner in the old Looney Tunes cartoons.

Bad traffic

Mexican drug cartels impact OKC.


News

Clifton Adcock
When federal agents raided a horse ranch in Lexington in early June, it wasn’t to take a dime-bag drug dealer off the street. It was to disrupt a money-laundering operation for one of Mexico’s most brutal drug cartels.

Kasey Steffen
I recently read reports in The Oklahoman about the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America’s 2012 Fall Allergy Capitals rankings. Every fall and spring, AAFA ranks the cities with the toughest allergy seasons.

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.
