Undercover Operation to Add Teeth to Meth Law

Fairfax County police plan an undercover operation to curb manufacturing of methamphetamine. Today's Fairfax Extra reports that police will test stores to see if they sell more than the limit of 3.6 grams of ephedrine or pseudoephedrine a day to anyone. This is designed to enforce a law now in effect in the state limiting sale of the allergy and cold medicines, a key ingredient in manufacturing methamphetamine.
