A bill was proposed that would required people to have a prescription to buy medications medicines that contain ingredients used to make meth.
Nixa has seen a sharp spike in ephedrine and pseudoephedrine sales.
The police cheif says that could be because surrounding counties have passed ordinances requiring a prescription, so now meth cooks are traveling to Nixa to buy their ingredients.
Some pharmacists aren't on board with the proposed ordinance.
They suggest amending the ordinance to put a limit on how much pseudoephedrine you can buy.
However, the issue died after a first reading by the Council. It was not approved for a second reading and vote.
