Former Gov. Haley Barbour Urges W. Va. Lawmakers to Pass Anti Meth Law Similar to Miss.

WEST VIRGINIA, Miss. – Former Miss. Gov. Haley Barbour is making suggestions to West Virginian lawmakers to help combat the state’s meth problem. In a letter he urged them them to move forward with legislation that would make pseudoephedrine, a key ingredient to making meth, only available by prescription.

When Mississippi passed a similar law in 2010 the state saw a 98 percent decline in meth labs, saving “countless lives” according to Barbour’s letter.

So far the bill has already cleared the W. Va. Senate and may soon clear the House.
