SD Attorney General Happy With New Tool To Fight Meth

SD Attorney General Happy With New Tool To Fight Meth
Attorney General Marty Jackley

PIERRE, SD -

South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley has applauded the Legislature and governor for approving a measure establishing electronic records of cold medicine sales to mitigate meth production.

Jackley championed the bill. The measure will become law in July. It calls for retailers who sell cold and allergy medicines with particular ingredients to enter customer information into a tracking system.

Jackley says the policy will prevent the illegal purchase of ingredients necessary for methamphetamine production while respecting customer privacy and convenience.

The number of meth labs across the state has increased due to newer and simpler means of productions, Jackley says.

There were 162 meth arrests in 2008 and 1,200 last year. This January and February South Dakota law enforcement arrested 216 with meth charges.
