Faculty Publish Important National Methamphetamine StudyMay 08, 2012
A long-anticipated white paper on the role of state laws in reducing methamphetamine production written by two UK College of Pharmacy faculty members was recently published.
The National Association of State Controlled Substances Authorities (NASCSA) released the report, which is entitled "The Impact of State Laws Regulating Pseudoephedrine on Methamphetamine Trafficking and Abuse.”
The report was prepared by Drs. Trish Freeman and Jeffery Talbert, who both serve as faculty members in the College’s Institute for Pharmaceutical Outcomes and Policy in the Department of Pharmacy Practice and Science.
The report summarizes the impact of various federal and state laws on acquiring pseudoephedrine, a medication that is used in the illegal production of methamphetamine. Click here to read the executive summary of the report. The complete report can be found here.
