In my college days, when I'd say "I hope I don't get arrested over the drugs I've bought" I usually meant that in the marijuana sense of the word. Nowadays I worry about getting arrested over cold medicine. Have I grown that much lamer in my old age? No; the anti-drug stick up the government's ass has grown that much sharper. Over at the Guardian, I talk about how it's utter bullshit that I, a presumably free citizen of a theoretically free republic, had to be scanned into corporate and law enforcement databases just to buy cold medicine that works.
