President Signs Talent's Combat Meth Act
President Bush has signed the Combat Meth Act into law. The legislation, co-sponsored by Senator Jim Talent, will restrict access to cold medications containing pseudoephedrine and other ingredients essential to the making of methamphetamine. Furthermore, products that contain these ingredients will now be placed behind the counter in pharmacies, with purchasers required to show identification and sign a logbook. Senator Talent was among those taking part in the signing ceremony at the White House.
