A new State Senate bill passed April 17 will target methamphetamine production with tighter restrictions on over-the-counter medications without limiting consumer access to common allergy remedies.

House Bill 2941 limits the sale of pseudoephedrine by enhancing the real-time electronic blocking system that’s used to track who purchases the drug and how often.

The purchase of pseudoephedrine is now limited to 7.2 grams per month, which is the recommended therapeutic dosage. It also imposes a 72-hour purchase block for those who exceed the daily limit on the drug.
