Pseudoephedrine May Be Banned

Kentucky spent well over a million dollars last year dealing with methamphetamine.
Despite high-tech tracking put in place to stop the sale of pseudoephedrine the problem still exists and is getting worse. It doesn't stop meth labs. In Lincoln County, Oregon, District Attorney Rob Bovett was responsible for writing a law that made pseudoephedrine a scheduled drug. Oregon was the first and is the only state in the country with such a law. Since it passed, the state has seen a dramatic decrease in the number of meth incidents: 472 in 2004 compared to last year, when there were only 10. Many think something has to be done to combat the problem in Kentucky and there are medications currently available that don't contain pseudoephedrine and could replace it for congestion and sinus problems. Kentucky could be on the verge of taking definite steps to ban the sale of pseudoephedrine.
