WASHINGTON, June 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA) released the following statement in response to the North Carolina legislature passing a real-time, stop-sale system that allows law-abiding citizens to access safe and effective medicines containing pseudoephedrine (PSE), while stopping sales that exceed the legal limit:
"Today's passage of a real-time, stop-sale system is a victory for law-abiding North Carolinians who rely on access to medicines containing pseudoephedrine for cold and allergy relief. With the enactment of legislation implementing sales blocking technology in the state, criminals seeking out basic medications in an effort to produce methamphetamine have lost," said Carlos Gutierrez, CHPA director of state government relations. "We urge Governor Perdue to sign the bill into law as it provides law enforcement with a critical tool, while allowing hardworking families to access the safe and effective medicines they need."
