First arrest[edit]

The math in the original source for the first arrest appears to be incorrect.

This investigation revealed that William FOUSSE had purchased 406 Bronkaid caplets which contain 25 mg of ephedrine sulfate per tablet over a two week period, which resulted in purchasing over 29 grams of they did not

25mg=0.025g x 406 caplets = 10.15g not the more than 29g quoted. --zandperl 20:36, 7 May 2007 (UTC)


I think there should be links added to sources indicating the effectiveness of this measure in curtailing methamphetamine production, in order to let the millions of allergy sufferers inconvenienced by CMEA know that it has done at least done some good. Er, . . . are there any such sources? (talk) 23:34, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

Most methamphetamine production simply shifted to Mexico after the restrictions. All the CMEA did was inconvenience people with colds and allergies.. and increase the trade deficit. (talk) 11:24, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

First arrest[edit]

It is incorrect that Fousse was the first arrest under CMEA. The first arrest actually appears to be Tim Naveau, who was arrested in September 2006, certainly before the Fouse arrest in March 2007. I am going to change this section of this article to reflect this fact. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dr gonzo9 (talkcontribs) 20:54, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Fousse was the first under the CMEA (see ). Tim Naveau was arrested under an Illinois state law called the Methamphetamine Precursor Control Act (MPCA). —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:55, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Indeed, the DEA press release claims that Fousse was the first arrest under CMEA. --Dzhim (talk) 15:39, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
