National System Aims To Minimize Diversion of Cold and Allergy Medicine in Methamphetamine Production
Date:11/20/2009

cture of methamphetamine."

The NPLEx program is now being offered at no cost to states that have passed legislation to adopt real-time tracking of the medicines. This initiative has proven to be successful at enforcing the legal purchase limits enacted by state and federal legislators. The program has also given law enforcement a powerful new intelligence tool to locate more people involved in these crimes, and to find a higher percentage of meth labs.

"Like most states, we have felt the pain associated with this terrible drug," said Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear. "We are proud that Kentucky has been able to lead in the development of this technology platform. By reaching across our borders, we are preventing people from diverting illegal amounts of these cold and allergy medicines for the manufacture of methamphetamine."

The technology is used today to deny more than 5,000 monthly purchases of cold and allergy medicines in Kentucky that would otherwise exceed the legal limits. Law enforcement is able to immediately access electronic records, allowing them to better track meth lab suppliers.

"We are happy to be one of the first states to join the NPLEx coalition. In these difficult fiscal times, it is unusual that we find a way to implement solutions without the use of taxpayer funds," said Illinois State Police Lt. Colonel Rob Haley. "We are excited and ready to put this program in place, making it more difficult for criminals to divert these products for illegal use."

Louisiana's legislature passed a bill requiring electronic tracking, and officials there are seeking to establish NPLEx this year. "The only way for us to effectively fight the production of illegal meth is to work together," said Louisiana State Police Captain Charlie Dupuy.

In July, the National Sheriffs' Association and its Drug Enforcement Committee passed a resolution endorsing an industry-funded solution for electronic tracking
