It began in Lubbock as a city ordinance, now Texans everywhere must follow what's known as the "meth bill."
The bill limits the amount of cold medicines containing pseudoephedrine that you can buy. Pseudoephedrine is often ground down to make the illegal drug methamphetamine.
Effective August 1, 2005, all non-pharmacy retailers must receive state certification to sell solid-form pseudoephedrine. Those products must be locked up or kept behind the counter.
You can purchase no more than two packages or six grams of pseudoephedrine at one time. You must be at least 16-years-old, show an ID and sign for your purchase.
Lubbock's ordinance went into effect this past March.
