Target Stores Adopt Similar Policy As Lubbock's Meth Ordinance

Target stores nationwide are following Lubbock's lead in taking a stand against meth makers.

Target announced Monday that it will take all cold medicines containing pseudo-ephedrine off store shelves and provide it through its pharmacy instead. Pseudoephedrine is an active ingredient in cold medicines like Sudafed, Benadryl and Comtrex, but it is also used to make methamphetamine.

Target also says that in its stores without a pharmacy, those products won't be available at all.The Target in Lubbock has a pharmacy, but the announcement here is a moot point because the Lubbock City Council recently passed an ordinance requiring those products to be sold behind the counter.

So, since March 26th, anyone in Lubbock buying products with pseudo-ephedrine must ask the pharmacist for it and show proof that they are at least 18-years-old.
