First off I know laws differ by state. I live in Tenessee and as of now due to the overwhelming amount of methamphetamine production the sell of psuedoephedrine is strictly monitored. I totally get that and I am all for it. Now it's been probably at least a year since I've bought any and then I just gave them my drivers license, they entered my information into the system and sold it to me. I'm coming down with a horrible cold and stopped at Walgreens for some medicine. I tell the Pharmacist i would like to buy some sudafed. He never asks to see my drivers license, never asked my name, nothing to identify myself. Instead he asked my symptoms which is congestion and runny nose. Apparently that answer wasn't good enough and he refused to sell it to me. So I'm standing there and I feel like I'm being treated as a criminal. I was kind of shocked. Now I'm wondering if he was even allowed to refuse to sell it to me? Anyone have any info?
