"Methamphetamine is an insidious drug that causes enormous collateral damage. If Mr. Wallace is no longer in business he has perhaps become part of that collateral damage, for it was not a result of DEA regulations, but rather the selfish actions of criminal opportunists. Individuals that readily sacrifice human lives for money."
-- DEA spokeswoman Barbara Carreno responding to a question about the drug agency's decision to put a small business owner out of business. Wallace, an 88 year old inventor, came up with a water purifier popular with flood victims and backpackers. Meth users have started using the iodine in the devise to cook meth so the DEA declared it drug paraphernalia and won't allow him to build the bottles. Don't blame the DEA though, it wasn't them. It was the meth heads.
