Sudafed Sales Restricted To Hinder Meth Labs

From MSNBC.com:  "Last year, the Oklahoma legislature enacted a bill that limits the sale of cold and allergy medicine, pseudoephedrine, a key component in “cooking” the drug. The law requires the ingredient to be sold behind the pharmacy counter and customers have to show identification and are limited on the amount they are allowed to buy."  Other states are following suit, and Walmart and Target are imposing their own internal restrictions to prevent this type of conduct.  Story . . .  [Mark Godsey]
