In the April 2 newspaper, under the Local Briefs section, there was an article about the anti-meth bill that is in the process of being passed. I feel that the Local Brief section gives a positive impact to the newspaper by educating the readers about what is happening with the government.
I am in favor of the anti-meth bill. I feel that since this bill passed it will help to decrease the production of meth in our community, as well as surrounding communities. The electronic system that will be put into place will be more effective when dealing with the purchasing of medicines containing ephedrine and pseudoephedrine. The decrease from 9 grams to 7.2 grams with a yearly 24-gram cap will help to regulate the production of methamphetamines. This will allow people to still purchase the medications when needed without a prescription, but also place a limit on people who are buying the medications to create methamphetamine products.
The passing of this bill will positively affect the community and help to protect the residents of the community.
