Compromise to Rx-only bill passes Senate
A compromise to requiring a doctor’s prescription for cold and allergy medication containing pseudoephedrine (PSE), a key ingredient used to manufacture methamphetamine, passed the Senate today 25-11. As amended, SB 3 limits the purchase of PSE to 7.2 grams monthly and 24 grams annually before a prescription is required. Though this is a 78% reduction of the current purchase restrictions, we are encouraged legislators considered alternatives to the prescription-only mandate. If you believe the new restrictions in SB 3 will hinder your ability to combat cold and allergy symptoms, contact your state representative.
