Pseudoephedrine is the key ingredient in making meth and as much as they want to catch people getting and using it illegally, Daviess County law enforcement, pharmacists and doctors held a press conference to say why the legislation is a bad idea.
Daviess County Sheriff Keith Cain says law enforcement would be delayed a week in finding out who bought pseudoephedrine through prescriptions.
The current e-tracking system alerts law enforcement within seconds of any excess pseudoephedrine purchase.
The sheriff argues that making the drug prescription-based will do little to hinder meth makers.
The state legislators are expected to vote on the bill when they begin their next session next week.
