The State of Missouri has received some good news regarding the war on drugs. Statistics show Missouri is no longer the methamphetamine capital of the United States and the 25 percent drop year-over-year from 2012 marks the first time that Missouri has less meth incidents than any other state. Law enforcement officials attribute the significant decrease to the many communities that have passed ordinances requiring a prescription for pseudoephedrine which in turn limits the amount of meth labs. State lawmakers have also introduced a bill that would make it harder to manufacture the drug. House bill 1787 would lower the monthly limit of psuedoephedrine based medications a person can purchase.
