The article focuses on the Asian American Convenience Stores Association (AACSA) which aims to make life easier for its mainly Indian-American membership. The AACSA finalized its agreement with Royal Buying Group at the First Annual AACSA Convention and Trade Show in Tampa, Florida, on July 9, 2005. In the process of a sting called Operation Meth Merchant, federal prosecutors charged 49 convenience store owners and clerks in northwest Georgia with selling ingredients to make methamphetamine. The trouble is, all of the ingredients that the retailers sold, aluminum foil, cat litter, coffee filters and, of course, cold medicine containing pseudoephedrine, are perfectly legal.
