you know, this really does get my goat.
on top of there being no way to regulate all iodine, on top of there being many other ways to make meth using a different reagent, on top of all the profit killing and job killing and just plain stressful regulations taking all the joy out of running a business, and on top the continued protection of the real drug makers who manufacture and distribute the only precursor to making meth.... (deep breath)...this old man is now in bed with one of the worst criminal elements in the united states, the dea, and has become a target by their operatives and endangered in his proerty and person in that the criminals now know right where to go to steal this iodine.
make absolutely no mistake about it - that is the plan and it has gone down like that before. it has nothing to do with stopping the production of meth. you cant stop meth without stopping the big pharms.
