FFS folks, you can read it here first on TDB or wait a few months for the mainstream media to catch up…
The minister planning to put pseudoephedrine back on pharmacy shelves has been warned by officials that the move could fuel meth-related crime — echoing earlier concerns of pharmacists.
…TDB has been warning you since ACT announced this nonsense policy at the election that this was a disaster waiting to happen!
This isn’t Government policy – it’s the script to Breaking Bad!
Allowing Pseudoephedrine, the precursor ingredient to meth back over the counter will generate ram raids, which is hilarious because Luxon is claiming allowing cigarettes to remain getting sold will prevent ram raids!
Most meth coming into the country right now is finished product. Domestic Alpha Gangs use Triad contacts to have meth mass manufactured and shipped in, the 501 syndicates use South American Cartel Meth. It is purer and cheaper than the Triad meth, and it is this difference of product that is generating the recent gang war assassination campaign.
What allowing Pseudoephedrine to be sold back over the counter will generate is a new homebake industry as smaller players locked out of global supply chains move into the market.
ACT are the Party that knows the price of everything and the value of nothing!
Just to be crystal meth clear here, ACT’s solutions are MORE machine guns and MORE meth precursor ingredients?
The market will work out the rest will it?
Honestly Kiwis are thick, how come pseudoephedrine Pharma pimps and Tobacco interests seem to be more important to this Government than you know, actual health?
If you need pseudoephedrine you can get a prescription, allowing the raw material for the biggest illegal drug we have will simply open up a local homebake industry.
ACT always claim they support small business, but this is fucking insane.
