Oklahoma: Wagoner Mayor, James Jennings, won’t be repealing the pseudoephedrine prescription ordinance that was passed in his city, earlier this year. Despite a recent opinion ruling by the Oklahoma Attorney General’s office that deemed the ordinances in Wagoner, Okmulgee, Holdenville, and McAlester to be illegal, the pseudoephedrine ordinance in Wagoner will remain in effect, according to the Mayor. Pharmacies, who stood in support of the city’s pseudoephedrine ordinance, will be asked to continue to support their community by implementing their own rules about the sale of pseudoephedrine in their stores.
David Starkey, an Oklahoman who has been a staunch supporter of a pseudoephedrine prescription law in Oklahoma, reports that the battle to save Oklahoma from the devastation being caused in Oklahoma communities by the illegal manufacture of methamphetamine, isn’t over. According to Starkey, Senator Kim David will reintroduce a statewide pseudoephedrine prescription law that state legislators failed to vote on earlier this year before the end of the last session.
