Pseudoephedrine bill raises debate
If passed, Senate Bill 50 will require you to have a prescription to buy any medicines containing pseudoephedrine, a popular decongestant and a common ingredient in producing meth. Advocates of the bill believe it will go a long way toward curbing the drug problem. Those in opposition feel that the bill will do more to burden law-abiding citizens than it will to curtail meth production, and they have come up with some alternatives of their own. The senate judiciary committee will hear testimony on the issue again Thursday.
