Is Buying Pseudoephedrine a Crime?

The purchase of pseudoephedrine itself is legal within the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  Pseudoephedrine is used as the "D" in many over-the-counter as well as prescription allergy relief medication.  The drug itself treats stuffy nose and sinuses caused by the common cold, hay fever, or sinus infection. This medicine is a decongestant, hence the which follows the drug (i.e. Allegra-D, Zyrtec-D) and is the primary ingredient in Sudafed. Unfortunately for all allergy sufferers everywhere, the pseudoephedrine is also commonly used in the manufacture of methamphetamine, or crystal meth.  If the purchase of the allergy medication is for the intent of making or manufacturing meth, then you are violating state laws.  You may be prosecuted for manufacturing methamphetamine or at least the crime of possession of a methamphetamine precursor, also a FELONY in Kentucky. If you are a parent, you may also see these additional materials used to manufacture meth: fuel, acetone, anhydrous ammonia, coffee filters, sodium hydroxide (lye), iodine, red phosphorus (matches), ether, Draino, butane/lighter fluid, brake fluid, and hydrochloric acid.  Not every cooking method requires all of the above. Methamphetamine itself is a drug which can be used to treat ADHD, as well as weight loss in obese patients.  Use or possession of this drug, other than with a prescription, is illegal.  Manufacture of methamphetamine is a serious crime in Kentucky.  If you have criminal charges, contact Bouldin Law Firm for legal advice and representation.  Contact Michael W.
