Abstract

Pseudoephedrine (PSE) is a common medicine used to treat colds and allergies. It is also a common ingredient, or precursor, used to manufacture methamphetamine, an illegal Schedule II drug under Iowa law. Prior to 2005, pseudoephedrine could be purchased over-the-counter, in any amount. Since PSE is the one ingredient needed in all methods of meth manufacturing, it was readily available to meth cooks.
