JACKSON, Miss. — Tennessee lawmakers are looking at Mississippi as an example. It has been three years since Mississippi made pseudoephedrine a prescription drug, and while it may have made overcoming the sniffles more difficult for some, it has significantly reduced the amount of meth labs in the State.
In 2013 Mississippi had 120 run-ins with Meth while Tennessee saw nearly 1,700. Tennessee lawmakers are pushing to get a law regulating pseudoephedrine passed this legislative session.
