A legislative leader is questioning county ordinances restricting the sale of certain cold medications. Polk County today (Tuesday) became the latest to force retailers to place cold meds that contain pseudoephedrine behind the counter in hopes of making it more difficult for meth makes to buy the products that’re used to make meth. Senate Co-Leader Stewart Iverson, a republican from Dows, is skeptical those county ordinances are legal. “They can do what they want. I happen to think that under state law, that’s not allowed,” Iverson says. “But I’m not an attorney and unless somebody challenges it (in court), they can do it.” An opinion from the Attorney General has concluded counties do have the right to restrict the sale of cold medications in hopes of reducing the manufacture of methamphetamine.
