Several law enforcement officers across the state spent the past several months working and lobbying for legislation requiring medication containing Pseudoephedrine to be sold only by prescription.

Tommy Loving, Director of the Bowling Green/Warren County Drug Task Force, says requiring a prescription for drugs like Sudafed would cut down on the number of meth labs in the area.

But he says the drug companies did a good job of stopping the legislation dead in its tracks.

"I think Sen. Jenson put it pretty well. If they have a better idea, tell us, because I don't really think there's a better one out there with a proven record," said Loving.

Loving says he won't stop fighting. He says he plans to be back in Frankfort next year, fighting for the bill again.
