Legislators Want to Make Life More Difficult for Illegal Drug Makers

NOVEMBER 10, 2004 - Posted at 7:36 a.m. CDT

 

BENTONVILLE, AR - Two state legislators want to make it harder for illegal drug makers to get the ingredients they need from over-the-counter medicines.

Non-prescription cold remedies often contain pseudoephedrine and other chemicals that can be used to make methamphetamine.

State Representative Horace Hardwick of Bentonville and state Senator Percy Malone of Arkadelphia want buyers to have to show identification.  Purchasers will have to sign a list when they buy the medicine.

Attorney General Mike Beebe said he plans to make the proposal part of the package he'll recommend to the Legislature when it convenes in January.
