The Alabama Senate is expected to consider legislation designed to curb the illegal production of methamphetamine by making it harder to buy cold and allergy medicine with ephedrine and pseudoephrine. The bill is near the top of the agenda that the senate rules committee is expected to recommend Tuesday. It would allow ephedrine and pseudoephedrine to be sold only in licensed pharmacies. Convenience stores and other retail businesses could no longer sell the over-the-counter product. The bill will also effect the amount of the product a person can buy.
