A flurry of new and conflicting state and local laws regulating the sale of OTC cold products containing pseudoephedrine is creating compliance problems for drug chains operating in multiple jurisdictions.

Chain drugstore leaders urged Congress to adopt a national standard for the sale of OTC cold drugs. They warned that a "patchwork" system of differing state and local restrictions on the sale of these drugs will actually play into the hands of criminals seeking source material for illegal methamphetamine.
