11. it's grandstanding
if the stuff is already liquid chances are very good it's the sulfate version or other analogue and that it can't be used, so liquid cough syrups, Nyquil, et al, aren't used to make meth anyway.

The REAL solution, duh, is to insist on making all cold medicine in a form that can't be cracked into meth rather than burdening customers and pharmacies with extra legislation.
