I did a little more research apparently the ephedra ban was lifted but only for pills containing less then 10 mg of ephedrine. So while it's legal for these truck stops and websites to sell it, they still have to follow that law, and sales of large quantities is suspicious and monitored by legal authorities (since purchases of large quantities are associated with the creation of meth.) I think it's a good move for google to stay out of that mess, but hey don't stop there. Why not pull ads for porn while they're at it? How many porn dealers using AdWords have ties with illegal or shady porn sites, and what are the legal ramifications of that? I'm not trying to hijack this thread, but wouldn't it be best to stay out of that mess too?
