HARRIMAN, Tenn. (WVLT)-- Harriman Mayor Chris Mason says his town has no plans of changing an ordinance requiring a prescription for pseudoephedrine.
Tuesday the Tenn. Attorney General released an opinion that ordinances like the one Harriman passed last month are illegal.
Chris Mason says his town is trying to be proactive and help stop the meth problem because other options weren't working.
He says the measure will remain on the books until they hear otherwise, "Local pharmacists are working well with us. They're happy with what we've done. There's a lot of support from the community so it's going to be business as usual. The ordinance, the law that we passed will still be enforced."
Requiring a prescription for pseudoephedrine has been on the books for about a month.
