Like many other states across the country, Missouri is fighting meth with computers. Governor Jay Nixon said a new database will connect 13 hundred pharmacies across the state to tell police who’s buying pseudoephedrine and where they’re buying it. Law enforcement officials say the cold medication is the main ingredient in making methamphetamine and that many who make meth know they can’t just go buy a dozen boxes of pseudoephedrine at one place at one time, so they break it up. They buy a box here and one there. The new system will tell police who’s buying the drug and where so police can stop them from making methamphetamine.
