LANSING, MI--   Bills sponsored by state Senator Ed McBroom to combat the spread of meth have passed the Senate.

Senator Ed McBroom

The legislation would place restrictions on the amount of ephedrine or pseudoephedrine a person may purchase per month and per year. A resident would be allowed to buy 7.2 grams per month, down from 9 grams, and up to 61.2 grams per year.

The adjusted limits would allow for cold- and allergy-suffering Michiganders to buy the amounts they need to make it through two allergy seasons in a year and align with allowable amounts that may be taken currently. Should a larger dosage be required, a prescription may be ordered.

The bills have been sent to the House for consideration.
