New Anti-Meth program in Shelby County

COLUMBIANA, Ala. (WIAT) — Authorities have a new program to help fight back against the production, and use, of meth.

Senator Slade Blackwell and several Shelby County leaders spoke at Davis Drugs in Columbiana this morning. The group explained the changes made to state laws that  focus on meth.

Pharmacist Jim Davis Jr. also talked about a new identification system that can help pharmacists and law enforcement find anyone suspected of cooking meth.

“You swipe the driver’s license in the computer. It brings up the purchase of the pseudophedrine product then it will say whether or not they have reached their 7.5 grams of pseudophed in a month.”
