As Iowa legislators consider new restrictions on legal cold and allergy medications that are used to make the illegal drug meth, Scott County has become the latest county in Iowa to take action on the subject. Drugs containing pseudoephedrine will be going behind-the-counter in about 60 days. Scott County Attorney Bill Davis says the Iowa legislature is considering an even stronger law. Davis says a statewide law would be better, but if lawmakers don’t act, the county needs its own ordinance. Scott County supervisor Greg Adamson was a cop for 31 years. He says pseudoephedrine has been too easy to buy.Several counties or municipalities have moved cold and allergy drugs behind-the-counter, limited the number of boxes that can be purchased at once, and ask for I-D or have customers sign a log book.
