Governor Pence Signs Bills Aimed at Limiting Meth Labs

Governor Mike Pence today signed three bills into law regarding the sale of pseudoephedrine cold medicine. The first, SEA80 which allows a pharmacist to deny the sale of ephedrine or pseudoephedrine on the basis of the pharmacist’s professional judgment, and provides the pharmacist with civil immunity for making such a denial.  The Governor also signed SEA 161, and HEA 1157 which require the Division of State Court Administration (DSCA) to report certain methamphetamine-related felonies to the National Precursor Log Exchange (NPLEx) so that NPLEx can generate a stop-sale alert to prevent individuals who have been convicted of meth-related felonies from purchasing ephedrine or pseudoephedrine.
