City of Harriman votes to require prescription for Pseudoephedrine

HARRIMAN, Tenn. (WVLT) - The City of Harriman took a big step in fighting the meth problem.

On Tuesday night, the city council voted 6-0 to require a prescription for Pseudoephedrine.

It's one of the main ingredients used to make meth, found in cold and allergy medicines.

The new ordinance goes into effect immediately, but Harriman Mayor Chris Mason says time will be given to notify merchants of the change.
