    The misuse of ANY drug - controlled substance or OTC - is illegal in the USA. Misuse implies any use other than that which is specified on the label, or on the prescription written by the physician.

    Oh. Come back when you turn 18. You are too young at present. Bye!

    nagognog2 is right, but in addition if you are in public cops will get you for being intoxicated in public. I think one of the bigger problems would be the cop believing that your on dxm and not something else, a lot of the public is unaware of dxm (which is part of the reason we still have it :) ).

    don't say you're on anything, just ask them why they are afraid of people who are differant and that you are of sober mind. or better yet, say nothing at all. operating a vehicle while under the influence of any mind altering substance is illegal so yes you will get busted.

    also, tripleC, do some research about DXM use and learn that triples c's are dangerous and that there are safer options that contain DXM

    You should not be driving while under the influence of DXM in the first place. If they can tell you are fucked up, they can give you a ticket for Driving while intoxicated. Just because they cant prove you are fucked up does not mean they wont take your ass to jail. This has happened to a friend of SWIM before, and it can happen to you too. Please start using the acronym swim so you will not incriminate yourself. We all know you would never take triple c, but SWIM might.

    Stick to medicine which only contains dextromethorphan. You have much to learn.
