WILDWOOD, Mo. (AP) –  A St. Louis County town may become the latest to fight methamphetamine by requiring a prescription to buy cold and sinus pills containing a key ingredient.

Wildwood officials held a public hearing this week on the possible ordinance.

A first reading on the bill is March 14.

The measure would require a prescription to buy pills containing the decongestant pseudoephedrine.

About 30 Missouri towns have adopted similar ordinances.

Missouri reported 1,960 busts and seizures of meth labs in 2010, a 10 percent increase over the previous year.
