Statement from the Consumer Healthcare Products Association on Mississippi Bill that Seeks to Make Cold, Allergy Medicines Containing Pseudoephedrine Prescription-Only
Date:1/28/2010

Majority of Mississippi voters support e-tracking as better solution

WASHINGTON, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a statement by Linda A. Suydam, D.P.A., president of the Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA):

"Today, the Mississippi House of Representatives passed a bill without listening to any testimony that, if it becomes law, will greatly limit how cold and allergy sufferers access some of their medicines. The legislation would require law-abiding families to obtain a doctor's prescription for pseudoephedrine- (PSE-) containing medicines rather than simply asking for these medications at the pharmacy or service counter. Mississippi lawmakers seem prepared to impose this burden on Mississippians, even though there is a better solution.

"Mississippi's voters agree this is not the right way to address meth. As states continually find themselves in dire financial situations, policy makers must balance efforts to regulate ingredients used to create meth with the public health and economic consequences of restricting access to important cold and allergy medications. Electronic tracking is one such solution that eight other states have adopted to fight domestic meth production while maintaining consumer over-the-counter access to these products.

"An e-tracking system is a tool that law enforcement and pharmacists can put in place to stop the sale of illegal amounts of PSE as set forth by the Combat Meth Act. With this real-time tracking system, states can also link up with other states to track cross-border sales. For instance, neighboring Louisiana has plans to implement e-tracking starting in March
