Majority of Springfield Voters Oppose Prescription Only PSE Requirements
Date:7/22/2013

ng residents decide on such a contentious policy. The Council is set to vote on the bill and subsequent amendment on Monday, July 29th.

"Mandating a prescription requirement at the local level is not an effective solution to stop methamphetamine. In fact, Missouri law enforcement data from one Missouri county that has already imposed a prescription mandate shows an increase in labs.  Rather than pursue a policy that would burden responsible taxpayers, Springfield leaders should focus on balanced solutions that penalize criminals, not law-abiding consumers," Gutierrez said.

  • By a large margin of 62%-31%, Springfield voters oppose the proposal to require everyone who wants to buy cold or allergy medicines containing pseudoephedrine to first get a prescription from a doctor.   
  • A significant majority (52%) say that they would "definitely vote no" on a prescription requirement for medicine containing pseudoephedrine if it was placed on the ballot. 
  • The strongest opposition to the law is among consumers that have children ages 18 or younger, with 70% opposing the new law and 25% supporting it.
