To my knowledge law enforcement officers are not big fans of this NPLEX system, they prefer laws that require a doctor's prescription to buy ephedrine: ephedrinewheretobuy.com/cops-in-favor-of-prescription-for-ephedrine
Their main argument is that smurfers will be paid by meth cooks to get pseudo ephedrine under the legal limit. Well, smurfing is a felony leading to prison so maybe smurfers will think twice? Anyway, personally I think we should give a chance to this real time tracking system.
I can't believe that laws will ever stop drugs. See the November edition of the International Journal of Drug Policy: "Federal laws that try to prevent production through controls of precursors haven't worked". Hence the dilemma for politicians who have to to choose between drug control or imposing cost and inconvenience to honest patients. My "preferred solution" would be to require a prescription to buy ephedrine but also to authorize the new meth-proof products to be sold over the counter, as there is no risk of misuse: ephedrinewheretobuy.com/new-meth-proof-ephedrine-for-sale
