MONTGOMER, AL (AP) -
A new law has taken effect that's aimed at
making it tougher for people to get a key ingredient needed to produce
the illegal drug methamphetamine.
At the same time, the new
law insures that allergy sufferers will still have access to the same
substance, pseudoephedrine, which can mean the difference between
clogged sinuses and being able to breathe.
The new law stops a process
called "smurfing" where manufacturers of meth ask various people to buy
pseudoephedrine in small amounts from different locations.
Attorney General Luther
Strange said the Consumer Healthcare Products Association was launching a
campaign to explain how the law works.
Former state Rep. Blaine
Galliher, an aide to Gov. Robert Bentley, said the law makes it illegal
to buy pseudoephedrine if the buyer intends to sell it.
