ALLEGAN COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Newschannel 3 I-Team is digging deeper into the war on methamphetamine.
Allegan County law enforcement leaders tell Newschannel 3 that requiring a prescription for pseudoephedrine can stop southwest Michigan's meth epidemic in its tracks, and there's legislation in the works that would do just that.
But supporters are seeing push back from the pharmaceutical industry.
On Wednesday, the Allegan Chief of Police received an email from a state representative, saying the bill has attracted limited support, and administration will not allow it to move forward.
The I-Team went through in-depth studies and claims from supporters and critics of the proposal to find the truth about getting meth off our streets.
