Share this post

Legislation to further strengthen anti-methamphetamine laws across Indiana passed the full Senate Monday. Senate Bill 496 would allow ephedrine/pseudoephedrine to be sold only at retailers participating in the National Precursor Log Exchange database, prohibits anyone convicted of certain meth-related crimes from possessing ephedrine/pseudoephedrine without a prescription for seven-years, increases the criminal penalty of those who buy more than ten-grams of certain meth ingredients, with the intent of giving them to another person for meth making, and limits the amount of ephedrine/pseudoephedrine you can buy in a one-year period without a prescription to 61.2 grams. The bill is expected to be assigned to the House Judiciary Committee.
