Date:10/31/2012

LUTHERVILLE, Md., Oct. 31, 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 released the latest results achieved by the real-time, stop-sale system in Missouri.  Data aggregated through the National Precursor Log Exchange (NPLEx) for the first three quarters of 2012 shows electronic technology in the Show Me State blocked the sale of more than 35,000 boxes of medicines containing pseudoephedrine (PSE) preventing more than 87,600 grams from potentially being diverted by meth criminals.

"Missouri's NPLEx system provides law enforcement professionals 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).  "The system is blocking thousands of unlawful attempted purchases per month and keeping key ingredients out of the hands of meth cooks and dealers. Law enforcement officials can receive NPLEx alerts on their mobile phones anytime a suspect exceeds their pseudoephedrine-purchasing limit."
