One of the nation's most popular pharmacies won't be selling some cold medications in West Virginia anymore. CVS is putting a sales ban in place for medications containing pseudoephedrine at its stores in the Mountain State. The sales ban applies to medications that have pseudoephedrine as the only active ingredient.
Monongalia County Sheriff Al Kisner said, "The more pharmacies take the stance, that they're just not going to sell it, will make an impact eventually."
Some local residents are in favor of what CVS is doing while others believe it won't necessarily make a difference.
Morgantown resident Taylor Crabtree said, "I don't think they should stop selling it. I think there would be other ways they could stop people from buying it for the wrong reason."
Emma Jackson also lives in Morgantown. She said, "Anything that's going to cut down on drugs and keep them out of the hands of our children is a good thing."
Earlier this year a bill that would have required a prescription to buy pseudoephedrine failed to pass during the state's regular legislative session. Police have seized 207 meth labs statewide this year.
