Bipolar Position

Can someone scream persecution and cuddle with their persecutor?
From the Louisville Courier-Journal:

A bill that combines proposals by the Fletcher administration and Attorney General Greg Stumbo to fight the use of illegal drugs was approved 37-0 by by the Senate today. Senate Bill 88 is intended to combat illegal online orders of prescription drugs by requiring an in-person exam by a medical professional.

Currently, a patient can order prescription drugs by answering medical questions online or by phone. Stumbo said another key part of the bill would make it a Class D felony, punishable by one to five years in prison, for others besides pharmacists to be involved in an illegal shipment of prescription drugs. He said the provision will help prosecute brokers of illegal online drug purchases.

The bill, sponsored by Sen. Robert Stivers, R-Manchester, also would make it possible to track purchases of pseudoephedrine — the main ingredient in methamphetamine — through an online link of all 12,000 pharmacies in the state. SB 88 was approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee and then later in the day by the full Senate. It now goes to the House.
