Indiana lawmakers look at tougher laws on over-the-counter drugs

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Lawmakers in Indiana are taking steps to toughen state laws on over-the-counter drugs in the state.  A Senate committee is supporting tougher limits on how much cold medicine people can buy per year.

The move is aimed at keeping people from using the medications to make meth.  Bill sponsors say they believe people with allergies and illnesses will still be able to buy the medicine they need under the new limits.

Lawmakers are also pushing once again for a measure to crack down on businesses that sell synthetic drugs like "bath salts."
