Walmart Backs Pseudoephedrine Restrictions

House Bill 1444 by Rep. Marshall Wright, D-Forrest City,Arkansas
Walmart Pharmacy
In Arkansas they have serious meth problems like Oklahoma and HB 1444 would have required a prescription for all pseudoephedrine, ephedrine and phenylpropanolamine. To have the director of pharmacy regulatory affairs from corporate division of Walmart support restricting pseudoephedrine by prescription is a very big deal. Although it did not pass yet it is something that Oklahoma and the rest of the country should take note of.

Representative Wright said his bill would reduce the availability of pseudoephedrine, a key ingredient in the manufacture of methamphetamine, an illegal drug that is rampant in the state and around the country.

Tim Koch, director of pharmacy regulatory affairs for Wal-Mart, also spoke for the bill, saying it is the most effective way to control the distribution of medications with pseudoephedrine.

Marshall Fisher, director of the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics, spoke for Wright’s bill, saying his state passed similar legislation last year that has resulted in a significant reduction in the number of meth labs seized by law enforcement. (Source Arkansas News)

I think every state Representative should watch the videos I have on this web site because I am tired of seeing children die in meth fires that are 100% preventible. I will not stand silent for any State Representative to take money from the drug lobby to keep this law from passing. It is no longer a Democrat or Republican issue and it’s not just a Oklahoma issue. It is time to step up and pass this simple restriction for dry tablet pseudoephedrine. Since there will be no restrictions on gel cap or liquid pseudoephedrine people will not mind switching to stop the meth.

In Oklahoma you are allowed 9 grams of pseudoephedrine or about 3 boxes a month. The people shopping for the meth cook or ( smurfs ) can get $100.00 per box out of a box of pseudoephedrine x 3 boxes a month x 20 ID’s is 60 boxes of pseudoephedrine sold to the meth cook for $6,000. That is just for one smurf and there are tons of them that go in car loads every day with a different ID at every store.

In 2001 Oregon had 584 meth labs and in 2006 they passed a prescription only law. In 2008 they had 12 meth labs and 2011 they have had 1 ( one ). In 2010 Mississippi passed the prescription only option and meth labs are already down 70% and falling.

This is no longer a debate on how to stop meth labs with a track record since 2006. It is time to pass this ordinance city by city and then state wide. It is time to run these meth cooks that are burning up Oklahoma children to another state. Anywhere but here!
