A new state law restricts the sale of ephedrine and pseudoephedrine tablets because they are a key ingredient in the illegal drug methamphetamine, a drug which is considered the number one drug problem in Alabama.
The new law requires that tablets where ephedrine or pseudoephedrine is the sole active ingredient must be kept behind the counter or in a locked display case in stores.
Anyone wanting to purchase the tablets will have to present identification and sign for them.
