CRYSTAL CITY, Mo. (AP) - Another Missouri city is requiring a prescription to purchase cold and allergy pills containing pseudoephedrine - a key ingredient used to make methamphetamine.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the city council in Crystal City voted 5-2 Monday in favor of the measure.

Several other communities in Missouri have passed prescription laws, including Festus, Herculaneum, De Soto, Wildwood, Ellisville and Eureka.
