When I went to purchase the Advil, the clerk informed me that I would have to show proof of identification. See, it turns out that tweekers take the active ingredient in this medication and cook it into meth. Sooooo, you need to present valid picture ID to purchase it.
Anyway, as the pharmacist dutifully entered my information in the anti-tweeker database, I was struck by two thoughts:
- I wonder how all of the old, poor, young, illegal, rural, urban Democrats who don’t have IDs by the hundreds of thousands obtain medication?
- By sheer luck, I happened to have my State required and issued identification papers; my driver’s license.
