Pseudoephedrine is found in common cold and allergy medicines and is a key ingredient in methamphetamine. The bill comes after two efforts to require prescriptions for medicines containing pseudoephedrine failed in committees. The latest bill was sent to the full House on a 15-0 vote by the House Public Safety Committee.
