    Sleep aids

    Have noticed in Wally World, CVS, etc., low stock on melatonin, & other sleep aids, especially for children. The whole country ( except for the politicians) will be on meds for sleep, anxiety, depression eventually. Covid's been a humongous cash cow for the drug companies & businesses related. Saw a cartoon that showed the CDC milking $$$ out of a covid spore like it was a cow - quite on the mark.

    Many products are low on inventory, haven't you noticed that?

    The cartoon you mentioned makes no sense at all. Get some sleep.

    Melatonin is rumored to help protect against the WuFlu too, so that could be a factor in it's short supplies.

    There's no shortage of bourbon.
    Officially, Down for the count

    I know enough to know, I don't know enough
    Why is it that those who complain the most contribute the least?

    I've been known to have bourbon in me before noon. Then again, I've been known to do a lot of things.

    Bourbon shortage, No. But there is a glass bottle shortage and all the high end alcohol is in short supply because of it.
    A dying culture invariably exhibits personal rudeness. Bad manners. Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners, is more significant than is a riot.

    Most of us here understand how condensers work. Most of us have an ample supply of copper tubing and have access to copper sheets… If push came to shove, and there was a shortage, the HVAC/R industry would “save the world”.
    If God didn't want us to eat animals... He wouldn't have made them out of MEAT.

    I don't like bourbon or whiskey with too much bite. I drink it straight on the rocks.

    Well I dont know so much how the opiate crisis has been but I remember when it was a huge problem. People not involved in the drug world getting hooked on these pills that Drs. Gave out like candy on halloween. Like suburban soccer moms and lawn dads.

    So I dont know drugs have always been a problem and sleep aids really are just a microcosm of that whole thing. I guess some people genuinely get some insomnia and there is a shortage of a lot of stuff.

    If you're talking about dependence though there's a more serious reality to that then people eating up a couple melatonin gummies before night night time.
