CHPA Applauds Alabama's Adoption Of HB 363
Date:4/26/2012

WASHINGTON, April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --- The Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA) today applauded Alabama Governor Robert Bentley for signing into law House Bill 363, legislation that significantly improves Alabama's methamphetamine enforcement laws by implementing a drug offender registry, stricter penalties for meth-related crime and enhancements to the state's real-time, stop-sale technology.  HB 363 and its companion legislation in the Alabama Senate was authored by Rep. Blaine Galliher and Sen. Bill Holtzclaw.

By adopting a drug offender registry, the Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center will maintain electronic records of individuals convicted of felony drug charges and synch that data with the state's current real-time stop-sale technology, the National Precursor Log Exchange, NPLEx. NPLEx -- much like a declined credit card transaction -- would instantly block the sale for any individual on the drug offender registry for up to ten years.

"Now that Governor Bentley has signed HB 363 into law, Alabama has taken another significant step in the battle against methamphetamine," said Scott M. Melville, president and CEO of CHPA. "With the state's real-time, stop-sale technology continuing to demonstrate impressive results, this law will make the technology even more effective. The enhancements will ensure that more criminals are caught and more unlawful purchases are blocked by the system. HB 363 is a victory for law enforcement officials, pharmacists and retailers. Above all, however, it is a victory for law-abiding consumers. We commend Rep. Galliher and Sen. Holtzclaw for all their hard work on this important law."
