Legislature Considering Changes to Rules on OTC Cold Meds

A bill aimed at curbing methamphetamine production is facing pushback from opponents. The Senate Local Government Committee is considering a plan to require a doctor's prescription to purchase drugs containing pseudoephedrine, which is an ingredient used in the manufacture of meth. But Arkansas City Police Chief Sean Wallace says it's a minor...and appropriate...inconvenience.

Supporters say the solution being proposed by drug companies for computerized tracking of over-the-counter cold medicine sales does not go far enough. Teams of addicts currently purchase small quantities of the medicines until they have a sufficient amount to make meth.
