Date:7/17/2012

LUTHERVILLE, Md., July 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI) – a nonprofit organization that facilitates cooperation between law enforcement, healthcare professionals, state regulatory agencies and pharmaceutical manufacturers in the prevention and investigation of drug diversion – today lauded the latest results achieved by the real-time, stop-sale system in Illinois.  Data released by the National Precursor Log Exchange (NPLEx) shows electronic technology in the Prairie State during the first six months of 2012 blocked the sale of more than 31,000 boxes of medicine containing pseudoephedrine (PSE) preventing more than 71,000 grams from potentially being diverted by meth criminals.

"Illinois' real-time, stop-sale technology continues to provide law enforcement officials and retailers with a critical tool in the battle against meth production and abuse," said Charles F. Cichon, executive director of the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI).   "By targeting criminals and dealers who are attempting to misuse popular cold and allergy medicines to make meth, NPLEx ensures that responsible consumers will continue to be able to purchase the medicines they want, when they want them."
