Proposed Cold Pill Bill Would Help Fight Methamphetamine Production

A bill winning initial approval in the state legislature would limit the sale of certain cold pills in Colorado. Under House Bill 1110, Coloradans would be limited to buying three packs of cold pills at one time.

The bill is intended to make it harder for home–based methamphetamine labs to operate, because some cold tablets contain chemicals commonly used to make methamphetamine.

One local pharmacist says he believes the bill is a good idea, but if passed would create more paperwork for pharmacists who would have to keep a log of the number of packages sold to customers.
