NADDI Releases 2017 Statistics for NPLEx System

2.15.18, National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators, PR Newswire

LUTHERVILLE, Md., Feb. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI) – a nonprofit organization that facilitates cooperation between law enforcement, healthcare professionals, state regulatory agencies and pharmaceutical manufacturers in the prevention and investigation of diversion of medicines for illegal purposes – applauded recent results from the National Precursor Log Exchange (NPLEx) through the end of 2017. From January 1, 2017, to December 31, 2017, NPLEx successfully blocked the illegal sale of 1,788,808 boxes of medicine containing pseudoephedrine (PSE), which can be diverted by criminals to make meth.

The NPLEx system, a proven tool in the fight against PSE diversion across the country, helps retailers enforce existing laws blocking the unlawful purchase of medicine containing PSE at the pharmacy counter and provides law enforcement officers with valuable information such as “watch lists” that notify them via email of attempts to purchase PSE. Additionally, some states have gone further by using NPLEx to enforce a ban on the sale of PSE products to individuals previously convicted of a meth crime.
