South Carolina's Stop-Sale System Achieves Significant Results In Battle Against Meth
Date:7/9/2012

LUTHERVILLE, Md., July 9, 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 South Carolina.  Data released for the first six months of 2012 by the National Precursor Log Exchange (NPLEx) shows electronic technology in the Palmetto State blocked the sale of more than 27,000 boxes of medicine containing pseudoephedrine (PSE) preventing more than 67,000 grams from potentially being diverted by meth criminals.

"South Carolina's real-time, stop-sale technology is providing retailers and police officer the tools they need to stay one step ahead of meth cooks and dealers," said Charles F. Cichon, executive director of the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI).  "The proven technology allows retailers to block unlawful attempted purchases of medications containing pseudoephedrine right at the sales counter.  By targeting criminals, NPLEx ensures responsible South Carolinians will continue to have access to the safe and effective cold and allergy medicines of their choice."
