This was a special meeting to discuss how SIG could support State Senators and Representatives requiring Sudafed be either required to be made in gel form or obtained by prescription only.
Tennessee taxpayers spend over 1billion a year in drug related expenses. Tennessee is the #2 Meth manufacturing state in our nation. Meth could not be manufactured in Tennessee if Sudafed was sold in gel form. This year when a bill was proposed to that effect. drug mfg. spent between $1-$2 million dollars to confuse facts, cloud the issue and cost more lives and devastation to Tennessee families. Oregon and Mississippi have already passed laws to curtail Sudafed in it's current tablet form without prescription. Nexafed (see nexafed.com) is a new gel form allergy item that can be substituted.
The lives of our Tennesseans are at stake.
