Police: Restrictions on cold medicines not combating meth makers

EVANSVILLE, Ind. -- A program aimed to crackdown on meth use in Indiana doesn't appear to be working! That's according to the state police.

The state keeps a computer record of cold medicines bought at pharmacies.

One trooper told the Evansville Courier and Press that meth users are getting around purchase limits by paying others to buy cold medicine for them.

Some lawmakers think the next step will be making cold medicine available only by prescription.
