System implementing anti-meth law in Oklahoma expected Oct. 1

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An electronic system to connect Oklahoma with other states to track sales of drugs containing a key ingredient in methamphetamine is expected to be running by Oct. 1.

A state law approved earlier this year established the system went into effect July 1 — and state Bureau of Narcotics spokesman Mark Woodward said work to integrate the state's current system into the system is under way.

Woodward said Oklahoma is the only state that already has a real-time tracking system in place while other states were simply “plugged into” the larger system.

Edmond pharmacist Sherry Ross says she thinks the move is well-intentioned — but says she'd rather see authorities focusing on drug dealers and sellers and on prescription pain-killer abuse.
