"Combating the production and sale of methamphetamine is the first serious step toward making our communities safer and better places to call home."
- Rep. Ramras

 

(JUNEAU) - Today, Representative Jay Ramras (R-Fairbanks) introduced House Bill 149 aimed at decreasing methamphetamine production and use in Alaska.

The provisions of HB 149 will make it a crime to possess or deliver substances in such quantities that are used to manufacture methamphetamine. This bill will require a person acquiring drugs containing ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, or phenylpropanolamine, as well as those purchasing iodine or iodine crystals to show photo ID and sign a written log or receipt relating to the sale.

"Combating the production and sale of methamphetamine is the first serious step toward making our communities safer and better places to call home," said Representative Ramras.

Methamphetamine is a highly addictive central nervous system stimulant, and it is easily produced in home laboratories using over-the-counter drugs and various chemicals that can be found in most grocery stores. The manufacturing process for the drug is extremely dangerous, as the chemical compounds are toxic and extremely flammable. Just $100 in materials can easily be used to develop $1,000 worth of the substance, making it extremely profitable. HB 149 will work to keep criminals from easily obtaining certain chemicals that are critical to the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

HB 149 has been referred to the House Judiciary and Finance Committees.
