"The St. Charles County Council voted on July 25 to require a doctor’s prescription when purchasing cold and allergy medications that contain pseudophedrine. Unfortunately, the ordinance imprudently inserts doctors into meth makers’ raw material supply chains. It is difficult to imagine, much less believe, that this ordinance will effectively diminish meth production in Missouri. With a sufficient profit motive, meth makers will seek out alternative arrangements for the procurement of pseudophedrine, perhaps by recruiting doctors as critical prescription suppliers."
