Report: Company claims its decongestant can’t be used to make meth
(CBSNews.com) - Several pharmacies in the St. Louis area are selling a new pseudoephedrine-based decongestant made by a local company that claims the drug cannot be used to make methamphetamine.
Pseudoephedrine, which can be found in cold and allergy pills, is a vital precursor for most meth recipes. Missouri has been especially hard hit by the meth epidemic, leading the nation in meth lab seizures every year but one since 2003.
