Pseudoephedrine

Tennessee State Representative - District 74Nashville, TN – Bill HB1574, by the Bill Haslam administration cracks down on the sale of pseudoephedrine, the main ingredient in the production of methamphetamines.

Gel and liquid form of pseudoephedrine is still available in unlimited quantities. «Read the rest of this article»
