Gov. Bill Haslam’s anti-methamphetamine legislation that was approved by the Senate in April will officially become law on Tuesday – July 1. There will now be a 28.8-gram annual limit for medications that contain pseudoephedrine. Pseudoephedrine is used to make methamphetamine and the government hopes the new measure will help slow those who make the drug in the Volunteer State. 

With the new law in place, if you need to purchase more than 28.8 grams of medication containing Pseudoephedrine, you will have to have a prescription.

According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, 1,685 meth labs were seized in Tennessee last year.
