My state just enacted a law restricting the same of cold tablets that can be used for the manufacture of meth. If your friend was in possesion of what would be considered more than what the manufacturer suggests for maximum dosage for a set period of time, he was probably breaking the law. In fact most states have laws that restrict the sale of any non prescription medications to maximum dosage recomendations. And I would bet the clerk that sold the drugs is also the one that tipped off the police. Sounds like you need to find new friends.
If you feel my answer is rude, mean, snarky or in anyway not to your liking, I did my job. You don't need to tell me.
