Missouri State Senate

Introduced

SB 27 - This act adds controlled substances to Schedule I, II, III, and IV.

This act also makes changes to the controlled substances in Schedule V. Substances, including any compound, mixture, or preparation containing any detectable quantity of pseudoephedrine, its salts or optical isomers, or salts of optical isomers, are added to Schedule V.

This act allows only a licensed pharmacist or registered technician to dispense, sell, or distribute products containing pseudoephedrine. Before purchasing these products, a person must produce a photo identification showing the person's date of birth and sign and print his or her name in a written log or receipt showing the date of purchase and the amount of the product. Pharmacies are required to immediately make the written log or receipt signed by customers available to law enforcement when requested. No one can buy more of these products than allowed by Section 195.417, RSMo.

The Department of Health and Senior Services may exempt products from Schedule V which it finds are not used in illegal manufacture of methamphetamine or other dangerous substances. A manufacturer can apply for removal from the schedule and the department may grant such removal if the product is formulated in such a way so to effectively prevent the conversion of the active ingredient into methamphetamine.

This act requires that products containing pseudoephedrine be offered for sale only from behind a checkout counter where the public is not permitted and be sold only by a pharmacist or registered technician.
