3.  Senate Bill 3-Effective Date: July 12, 2012

Sets out to make pseudophedrine available by prescription only.
However, as a result of compromise, this bill:
• reduces monthly limited from 9 grams in a 30 day period to 7.2 grams in a 30 day period
• lowers the annual limited from 108 grams to 24 grams (which translates to enough for use during spring & fall – for seasonal allergies).
• creates offender block list – an individual convicted of a methamphetamine related offense is prohibited from buying a pseudophedrine product for a period of 5 years after completion of sentence
