Drug Laws Suck

Posted by Tejus Parikh on November 29, 2007

I spent the better part of today feeling miserable. I’ve got a head cold, and there is little that’s less convenient than having a sneeze interrupt your train of thought. Of course, I went to the convienice store to get some medication. I bought the Sudafed, hopeful that I’ll soon be on the road to feeling better. But of course not, because they only sell the fake stuff. I bought it anywa and took two doses to no avail.

On the way home, I stopped by Rite-Aid (formerly Eckard) and got the real stuff. Now I can breath through my nose again. Without George Bush, the U.S. Congress, and Sonny Perdue protecting me from the horrors of cold medication, I really don’t know what I would have done. I might have been more productive at work today. I might not have conducted what amounts to biological warfare on my workplace (thought I took care to wash hands often). Or even better, I might not have gotten sick. I really thank our wonderful leaders for the opportunity to suffer from a head cold again.
