KIRKSVILLE, Mo. (AP) - Another Missouri town is placing restrictions on pseudoephedrine sales as part of the fight against methamphetamines.

The Kirksville City Council on Monday voted to enact a law requiring a prescription to purchase pseudoephedrine-based drugs. The Kirksville Daily Express (https://bit.ly/1fEzF2x ) reports that the law is effective in three months.

The law passed by a 3-2 vote. Councilman Glenn Moritz, a supporter, says that because of the gravity of concern over meth, the benefits will surpass the inconvenience. Opponents worry about the impact on those who need cold and sinus medications containing pseudoephedrine - a key component of most meth recipes.

Adair County had 55 meth lab incidents through October and was on pace to top the county record of 57 incidents in 2003.
