State pharmacies to join interstate tracking system

Posted: Updated:

Undated_The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics hopes to crack down on meth-makers with a new online database. It's called the "National Precursor Log Exchange", or "N-PLEX".

It's an program where pharmacies can help police keep track of the sale of pseudoephedrine--a key ingredient for making meth.

Officials say the program will make it harder for meth-makers to produce the drug in the state and throughout the nation.

"The main data will be available, but people cannot go from Oklahoma over into Texas, or Arkansas, Missouri or Kansas and come back to Oklahoma with pseudoephedrine, because those states are also hooking into N-PLEX," said OBN Spokesman Mark Woodward.

It's a no-cost, online service from the state that offers real-time tracking of sales of over-the-counter cold and allergy medications.

It was intended to start October 1st, but officials now say it may be January before they see it up and running.
