Meth Tracking Bill Easily Clears Okla. Senate (Mar 13, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An attempt to thwart Oklahoma's growing meth problem by requiring pharmacies to track a key ingredient used to make the drug has easily cleared the Oklahoma Senate.

The Senate voted 45-1 on Tuesday for the bill that adds Oklahoma to a list of about 19 states with a national tracking system that regulates the sale of cold medications that contain pseudoephedrine.

The bill also further limits how much pseudoephedrine a person can buy each month, from nine grams to 7.2 grams. A new daily limit of 3.6 grams also is put into place under the bill.

Porter Republican Sen. Kim David voted for the bill but says she's disappointed lawmakers killed a separate measure that would have required a prescription to purchase cold medications containing pseudoephedrine.
