Meth Bill to be Revisited in 2014

House Speaker Beth Harwell says she expects the House in 2014 to revisit proposals requiring a prescription for pseudoephedrine, a cold drug also used to make methamphetamine. Police say past efforts to control the sale of the medicine through electronic systems in pharmacies haven’t done enough. According to Nashville Public Radio, House Majority Leader Gerald McCormick is in favor of the proposal, pointing to a Vanderbilt poll out last week saying two-thirds of Tennesseans favor requiring a prescription to get pseudoephedrine.
