Cold medicine by prescription only
There is another proposal, however, to make all sales of pseudoephedrine products prescription purchases, something supported by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. The problem with this idea is that while the ingredients in these cold medications are indeed used in the production of meth, the medicines themselves are otherwise inexpensive cold and flu remedies. Prescription medicines are often far more expensive than their non-prescription counterparts, even if there is a non-prescription dose of the same product.
