I didn't realize there were some kind of laws on hypodermic needles. I just went to a Web site and bought some. I started looking around and most sites require a prescription. Is this a state to state thing or federal law? This is totally ridiculous. Needles don't hurt people(unless they are shared) it is the drugs put in them. If legally you can't buy the drugs without a prescription why do you need a prescription for the syringe and needle? You can't do too much damage with a gun without the bullets. At least no more than a lead pipe.
