Oklahoma cities can not enact their own pseudoephedrine prescription laws, according to a ruling by the their state Attorney General, E. Scott Pruitt.
According to the July 29, 2011 Attorney General’s ruling, Oklahoma cities “have no power to enact or enforce local ordinances prohibiting the dispensing, sale, and distribution of pseudoephedrine without a legal prescription since such regulation intrudes upon a matter of general state-wide concern and is not a matter of purely local or concurrent jurisdiction.”

According to an article published by Deseret News, the “Del City fire marshal Jeff Keester testified that items associated with the making of the illegal drug methamphetamine were found in the burned recreational vehicle with the bodies of 4-year-old Christopher Dunham Jr., 3-year-old Crystal Dunham and 22-month-old Kailey Dunham.”
How many more children will have to suffer and die before Oklahoma state legislators do something to protect them?
How many more innocent Oklahomans will be made to pay the price of allowing meth cooks to buy pseudoephedrine over-the-counter?
