Illinois is Taking Steps to Make Meth Harder to Manufacture

All recipes for meth contain ephedrine or psuedoephedrine.  Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan recently announced that the Methampetamine Precursor Control Act (MPCA) was signed into law.  Psuedoephedrine and ephedrine are now classified as "schedule V controlled substances"- meaning they must be kept behind pharmacy counter.  It requires that all single and multi-active ingredient products, tablets, liquids and gel caps be dispensed by trained pharmacy personnel.  No prescription is needed, however customers must display a photo ID and sign a log to purchase any of these products.
