All long haul truckers and every short hall truckers remember the original Mini Thins Ephedrine tabs and the similar product Truckers Luv IT. Both of the products were a main stay used by truckers and drivers to stay awake, keep alert and to boost their energy.
Unfortunately the main ingredient of each of the products was Ephedrine. It is not unfortunate because the ingredient was ephedrine, the unfortunate part is that ephedrine is a stimulant and its chemical make up is close to that of methamphetamine. So garage chemist were buying it and converting it to meth.
The government cracked done as usual and punished the millions of legal users of ephedrine and basically made it impossible to buy or sell. Now for the good news, ephedrine is legal to sell and it is available again. Ephed Ephedrine 25 mg is the only pure ephedrine tablet available. In order to even retail this product the vendor must pay fees, pass a test, and qualify for a certificate from the DEA.
In order for a consumer to buy you must supply your state ID or passport for your first purchase, but once you have done that you can buy without presenting ID.
There are quantity restrictions on the purchase but you can buy more than enough for personal use on a daily basis.
