Indiana legislators have given final approval to a bill tightening the limits on how much consumers can buy of cold and allergy pills often used to make methamphetamine.
Several mayors and police groups pushed for state law to require a doctor's prescription to buy the medicines, but the bill doesn't take that step.
The state Senate voted in favor lowering the annual purchase limit of pseudoephedrine-based products to about 61 grams per person which is about an eight month supply.
The bill also increases the criminal penalties for anyone convicted of buying at least 10 grams of the medicines for a meth maker.
The House previously approved the bill and it now goes to Gov. Mike Pence for his consideration.
