We want your opinions

ISSUE: Last week, Anne Arundel County police took in 103 boxes of cold and allergy pills from three Indiana young people who told police they bought them here with the intention of reselling them at a profit to dealers in their home state who cook methamphetamine, or meth.

Police released the three after consulting with the state's attorney's office and learning that no Maryland laws had been broken.

A new federal law preventing bulk purchases of cold medications goes into effect this week, but local police and prosecutors said they want a state law so cases like this can be pursued without involving federal agents.

YOUR VIEW: Do you think the state needs its own law limiting the amount of cold and allergy medications that can be bought?
