ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The meth problem is getting bad enough in the city of St. Louis that there’s now a bill in the board of aldermen to do something about it.

Alderwoman Jennifer Florida says the problem is that surrounding towns have tough restrictions on pseudoephedrine sales, but the city doesn’t.

“They’re lining up twenty people, we’re in a recession, they give them a $20 bill, they go in, they sign up, they purchase the Sudafed, they give their identification, and then they give the person outside the drug,” Florida explained.

Florida’s plan calls for a prescription to buy pseudoephedrine. There is expected to be some opposition from drug companies.
