As Dayton and Spring City consider requiring a prescription for ephedrine-containing products in an attempt to curb the manufacture of meth, Tennessee Attorney General Robert E. Cooper issued an opinion saying that such restrictions could be illegal.
In the opinion released Friday, Cooper said that ordinances that seek to regulate the sale of the popular nasal decongestant violate state law, which places all such regulatory actions in the hands of the Tennessee General Assembly.
