Effective Solutions to War Against Meth
WITH another legislative session underway in Charleston, lawmakers are considering legislation aimed at tackling our state's methamphetamine problem.
Some are pushing for a new law that would require a doctor's prescription for certain cold and allergy medicines that contain the decongestant pseudoephedrine (PSE).
There's no question that meth production and use are a problem in the state, but we must remember that most of those purchasing these PSEbased products (Advil Cold & Sinus, Allegra-D, Claritin-D, Sudafed, etc.) are law-abiding citizens who are simply trying to ease the symptoms associated with the common cold or allergies.
