Governor signs pseudoephedrin bill

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) - Governor Chet Culver signed a bill to track multiple purchases of non-perscription cold medicine.

It forces anyone who buys cold medicine that contains pseudoephedrine to sign an electronic logbook.

Pseudoephedrine is a key ingredient for the illegal drug methamphetamine.

Shoppers previously had to go to a pharmacist counter and fill out a written logbook to buy pseudoephedrine.
