Kentucky police push for Rx-only PSE

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Members of the Kentucky Narcotic Officers' Association lobby for a state law to limit sales of pseudoephedrine-containing products to prescription-only to curb the growth of methamphetamine labs. In the association newsletter, President Stanley Salyards, a Louisville Metro Police sergeant, says the federal Combat Methamphtamine Act is not working, pointing to national statistics showing the number of meth labs has been on the rise since 2006. In Kentucky, the number of labs grew 55 percent in 2008 and 2009. KNOA says Oregon's 2005 decision to make PSE available prescription-only has paid off, with a "dramatic" decrease in the number of labs there. The Consumer Healthcare Products Association hopes to dissuade states from the Rx-only route by operating an electronic system for states to track sales (1"The Tan Sheet" Oct. 26, 2009)
