WV Task Force Supports Pseudoephedrine Controls

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin's Advisory Council on Substance Abuse has voted to support legislation that would make pseudoephedrine medications available by prescription only.

West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin's Advisory Council on Substance Abuse voted to support legislation that would make pseudoephedrine medications available by prescription only, acting Nov. 6, The Charleston Gazette's Eric Eyre reported.

Eyre's report said law enforcement agencies in the state have seized a record 463 methamphetamine labs so far this year, and the council's members hope enactment of a prescription-only law will help to reduce meth production and use in the state.

Oregon and Mississippi are the two states that require prescriptions for cold medications that contain pseudoephedrine, according to Eyre's report.
