Government crack down on cold medicines

NOW: Government crack down on cold medicines

Following a government crackdown on some cold medicines, America and Michiana saw a law in at-home meth labs.

In 2006 Congress passed the “Combat methamphetamine Epidemic Act” which regulated the sale of certain over the counter cold medications like Sudafed, that are used to make meth.

Now during this meth resurgence, it’s up to border patrol agents to try to stop the flow from Mexico, but there’s only so much they can do.

From 2012 to 2017, the amount of meth known to be coming from the South increased by about four percent.
