Should Pseudoephedrine be a Prescription Drug?

Despite a new law to limit the amount of pseudoephedrine Tennesseans can buy without a prescription, the manufacturing of methamphetamine continues to be a daunting problem in this state. The only effective way to tackle the problem, law enforcement officials say, is require a prescription to buy any pseudoephedrine (the main ingredient in meth) in this state. Meth production takes a large bite out of tax dollars going to law enforcement. There is the cost cleaning up the very toxic meth labs. And there are the medical and dental costs of those jailed for making meth. (Washington County Sheriff Ed Graybeal told the Press earlier this year his office is now paying $1,000 more a month for a dentist to deal with cases of “meth mouth” at the jail.)
