Police searched his home Dec. 28 and found a container with methamphetamine sludge and lithium, a coffee filter with about 5 grams of methamphetamine sludge, pseudoephedrine blister packs, more coffee filters, Coleman camp fuel, salt, a cold pack, sulfuric acid and packaging material that contained methamphetamine residue, according to an arrest affidavit.

Police also found a 12-gauge shotgun with ammunition, the affidavit states.

My 2010 campaign in the West Davenport Bar ,s was an eye opener to the proliferation of all drugs legal and not legal in our local society. You cannot help people who do not want help and those who dabble in meth are not social drug users and will drink rubbing alcohol if everything else is eliminated. The loss of our civil liberties and the increase in big brother eves dropper is not worth the war in my opinion. I have watched elected officials be stumble bum drunk and smoke marijuana and the hypocrisy of those actions as we lock up those who are on the edge of society is not right. Sadly we need to watch some of these hard core users self destruct and die from their usage to spread the news that you should not use.

Why in the world would this man make a video of himself cooking up a batch of meth? Maybe he was making a step by step instructional video?....Meth Making For Dummies!

Wait -- isn't there a law against having a bunch of Pseudophed? Just shows that criminals skirt ANY laws that do little more than make the politicians feel good and pose stupid restrictions on the law abiding (I would've LOVED to be able to get some of the "real" cold meds last night around midnight when this cold of mine shut my sinuses down, but alas, I'm nowhere near a 24-hour pharmacy that could get the stuff out from behind the counter!)

Where did it say how much Pseudophed he had? Your comment doesn't make much sense, you must be really sick.

His comment makes perfect sense. We have laws that limit buying ephedrine. I easily got the gist of what he meant. How much the guy bought is irrelevant, it is the fact that he can easily get around the law that is germane.

The meds cost the mule 6 to 12 dollars and they resell them for 50 to 70 bucks or a cut of the product. Another brilliant law by the legislature that makes reselling cold meds profitable and does absolutely nothing but increase the cost of government as we house these guys for the next 15 to 25 years and ask for more money for police budgets. The war on drugs is a sham. Read Cocaine Nation.
