Kansas selects NPLEx to track PSE purchases

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Kansas becomes the fifth state to take up the Consumer Healthcare Products Association's offer to monitor methamphetamine precursor purchases at no cost to the state. Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky and Louisiana have already said they will implement the industry-funded National Precursor Log Exchange to help enforce purchase limits for pseudoephedrine-containing OTCs. CHPA announced the Kansas Board of Pharmacy's decision March 22. While Mississippi recently became the second state to make all PSE drugs available Rx only, CHPA hopes other states will elect to use the tracking system (1"The Tan Sheet" Feb. 8, 2010)

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal called NPLEx "a critical tool to help crack down on the sale of drugs that are used to produce meth." Kentucky and Illinois also fully implemented NPLEx. Alabama, Florida, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, South Carolina and Washington State passed legislation to adopt the NPLEx system, but have yet to implement it, according to CHPA. Oklahoma and Arkansas use separate e-tracking systems. Oregon and Mississippi shifted PSE products to Rx-only availability
