Indiana House passes two bills to curb meth

March 1, 2016

Two measures aimed at to reducing methamphetamine production in Indiana are on their way to the governor's desk after receiving approval from the full House.

One measure would allow regular pharmacy customers to buy pseudoephedrine medicine, which is a key ingredient in meth, as usual, but would give pharmacists the leeway to sell limited quantities to unfamiliar customers before requiring a prescription.

The other bill passed would add drug offenders to a national pseudoephedrine tracking system and would ban offenders from buying such medicine without a prescription.

Both bills come after wide debate on how to stop Indiana's meth problem after the state topped the national list for meth lab seizures for the third year in a row.
