CHPA Advances Alternative to Prescription Mandate
Date:10/7/2011

FRANKFORT, Ky., Oct. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA) today urged members of the Kentucky General Assembly to adopt a new tool in the fight against illegal methamphetamine production and abuse, the Meth Offender Registry Block List.  The block list would prevent convicted meth offenders from purchasing medicines containing pseudoephedrine (PSE) - medicines like Advil Cold and Sinus, Allegra-D, Claritin-D, Mucinex D, and Sudafed - without a doctor's prescription.

This challenge is made greater by the creativity of criminal drug peddlers and addicts, and demands a col
