OK, shut up on the DXM. I already need 2 forms of ID, a major credit card and a note from my mother to buy a freaking allergy tablet. Then I have to grab a friend if I want one box for daytime use and one for night time...because with all the draconian security I can't even buy two boxes at once. All this is over a few tweakers mixing up some crystal. I hate to think what will happen if 3 people got into some cough syrup.
