Expanding Tennessee’s Meth Registry (Stupidity Personified…)

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Could efforts to expand the state’s meth registry end up stopping you from buying cold medicine? These concerns were raised Tuesday as lawmakers try to fight Tennessee’s billion dollar meth problem.

Tennessee has a meth registry if you’re busted for a meth related crime you are put on this list. It’s a list that lawmakers want to expand.

It all sounds simple enough. Expand the registry. Stop more people from making meth. Put a dent in a billion dollar problem.

But there’s a slight snag brought up by Senator Tim Barnes in a committee hearing on Tuesday.

If another man by the name of Tim Barnes is on the meth registry it may stop Senator Barnes from buying cold medicine.
