  1. Hydroxyzine hydrochloride is not a “schedule three narcotic”. It is a prescription antihistamine similar to Benadryl. There is no evidence of potential for abuse or addiction. Other than being a prescription drug, hydroxyzine has no particular restrictions and it is definitely not regulated as a narcotic. The police need to get their facts straight.

  2. OK, maybe this is Monday morning quarterbacking…. but I think if I had just passed a group of guys loitering in a parking lot who made homophobic, threatening comments in my direction, about the LAST thing I’d do would be put my headphones on, and tune out of my surroundings….am I crazy or something?

  3. someone should have told knuckle sandwich guy god can’t see at night so drinking and smoking is ok then.

  4. You are correct about what it is. Hydroxyzine is usually prescribed for those who suffer from anxiety disorders who don’t want the hassle of taking a more addictive drug. It is a schedule three though. There are only 5 schedules with 1 being the worst. The truth about this mans case is that he had prescriptions that didn’t belong to him which is a crime… The methamphetamines didn’t exactly help his case either.

      • Ian, I don’t know where you get your information, but hydroxyzine is not a schedule 3 drug. Although it is sometimes prescribed for anxiety it is more often prescribed for allergy, since it is an antihistamine. It is a prescription drug but it is not scheduled. I know – I am a prescriber and I deal with this all day in my work. Scheduled drugs are handled very differently from non-scheduled drugs, from a prescriber/pharmacist point of view. If you have information purporting that hydroxyzine is scheduled I would love to see the reference, because it is not true.

      • I was thinking the same thing. I couldn’t imagine buying hydroxyzine on the street let alone paying over 30 bucks a pill. LoL

  5. Agreeing with pshalit — hydroxyzine is an antihistamine, and it’s prescription but not scheduled, with no potential for abuse. Retails for like 40 cents per pill.

  6. If I saw five males standing around a Monte Carlo I’d go out of my way to avoid them day or night but that’s just me. Knock on wood I haven’t gotten mugged or assaulted so far. :D

  7. Knuckle sandwich guy might have deserved his comeuppance… but he didn’t deserve to get punched. Violence is not ok… even against assholes.

  8. I have not been to Q yet but it sounds as if they have some over zealous security?? I always feel like it makes a club less appealing when you have security that walks around frowning weith thier arms crossed in front of them giving dirty looks to patrons. Prefer security that blends in then they are better able to catch wrongdoing anyway like people having sex in the bathroom.

  9. I would have gone out of my way to avoid a group of 5 black males calling me a faggot, and if did walk past I sure as hell would not have placed ear phones in my ear so I could not hear them come up behind me to assault me. I see groups like that downtown on 3rd in the Pike Pine area and always get uncomfortable walking past they are always just milling around like they are just waiting to cause trouble.
