The Senate Judiciary Committee voted 7-1 yesterday evening to pass Gov. Bill Haslam’s plan to combat meth labs by capping pseudoephedrine purchases at two 20-tablet boxes a month and six boxes a year, the Tennessean reports. That measure is competing with several others in both the House and Senate, where some members favor making pseudoephedrine available only by prescription. Many see that as the harshest proposal to regulate the drug, which is found in many cold and allergy medicines but also is essential to making methamphetamine.
