CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — Franklin County is trying to become the first county in the state to require prescriptions for pseudoephedrine-based cold medicines as a way to fight methamphetamine production.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press (http://bit.ly/1bOrUC2 ) reports Cowan, Decherd and Estill Springs are the remaining municipalities set to pass local rules on the purchase of these drugs, which are already required to be placed behind the pharmacy counter statewide. The medicines are a primary ingredient in the production of meth.
