Gov. Bill Haslam announces a proposal to limit the sale of cold medications used to make methamphetamine during a news conference Thursday in Nashville. Under Haslam's plan, people could buy the equivalent of 10 days' worth of the maximum dose of products containing the meth precursors without a prescription each month. Pharmacists could allow another 10 days' worth, but anyone needed any more would have to get a doctor's prescription.
