Senator Kim David says NPLEx is a powerful tool to prevent illegal sales of meds containing PSE

OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma state Senator Kim David, R-Porter, on November 16 released data through the third quarter from the state’s real time, stop-sale pseudoephedrine (PSE) monitoring system, known as the National Precursor Log Exchange (NPLEx).

NPLEx has come to be considered a powerful and proven tool that allows retailers to block sales of cold and allergy medicine containing PSE, such as Claritin-D and Advil Cold and Sinus, when consumers have reached their legally allowed monthly or yearly limit, helping prevent sales to criminals who try to use these safe and effective medicines to make methamphetamine. This tool also provides law enforcement with the information to detect suspicious purchase patterns and identify, prosecute and convict suspected meth makers.

Oklahoma is among the 33 states across the country that have adopted NPLEx as a way to ensure that law-abiding citizens have access to these medicines, while also blocking potentially unlawful PSE purchase attempts in real-time at the point of sale.
