Governor Matt Blunt is simulating the signing Missouri’s newest anti-methampetamine law today. He’s in five cities to sign copies of the bill. The legislation will require people buying pills with ephedrine or pseudoephedrine in them to identify themselves. And it will require sellers to keep records who who is buying, and how much. Those two chemicals are key ingredients in meth-making. Cold medicines sold as gelcaps will still be over-the-counter or off-the shelf. But the hard tablets will require the identification and record-keeping. Oklahoma has a similar law. Officials there say it has led to a steep decline in meth-making. Blunt signed the real bill before he left Jefferson City this morning.
