VIDEO: Meth Awareness Class now available online.

Stop-sale of meth medicines gets high marks from law enforcement

Published on Tuesday, May 1, 2012

The Greenville County Sheriff's Office and City of Greer Police Department hosted a Meth Awareness Class on April 23 at Riverside High School to make residents aware of indicators of meth cooks and users.

Law enforcement officers making the presentation praised South Carolina’s stop-sale system that is a deterrent to individuals purchasing medicines containing chemicals in the production of meth.

Data released for the first quarter of the year by the National Precursor Log Exchange (NPLEx) shows electronic technology in South Carolina blocked the sale of more than 14,000 boxes of medicines containing pseudoephedrine (PSE) preventing more than 35,000 grams from potentially being diverted by meth criminals. NPLEx was fully implemented in the state in January 2011.

Greer City Communications Manager Steve Owens videotaped the Meth Awareness Class and has made it available for communities to view with their family, classes or groups.  For more information contact Owens at 416-0121.
