Anti-methamphetamine bills move ahead in Michigan
Question of the Day
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Legislation to stop the sale of ephedrine or pseudoephedrine to people convicted of methamphetamine-related crimes is moving ahead in Lansing.
The state Senate last week overwhelmingly approved bills to alert Michigan stores not to sell cold medicine containing the popular ingredients for meth production to criminals convicted of meth offenses. The stop-sale alert would apply for 10 years after a conviction.
Senators also voted to make it a 10-year felony to buy ephedrine or pseudoephedrine knowing it’s intended to make meth.
Michigan already restricts the sale or possession of certain amounts of ephedrine or pseudoephedrine.
The legislation sponsored by Republican Sen. John Proos (PROHS) of St. Joseph now goes to the House.
