A Bill that would demand a prescription for common cold relief products is being considered by lawmakers in West Virginia. The legislation aims to reduce meth labs across the Mountain State.
Right now, you can’t purchase produce like Sudafed or Claritin-D without a driver’s license. The bill aims to make it even harder for addicts to get their hands on some of the products used to make meth.
However, others argue it makes it hard for consumers suffering from cold and allergy.
Last week the bill was overwhelmingly passed by the W.Va. Senate.
Many pharmacies across the country are modifying their procedures to help with the problem. Rite Aid no longer sells pseudoephedrine. At Kroger Pharmacy, they sell the drug but offer a version that can’t be made into meth.
