Mark Warner on Drugs

Democratic VA Governor


Place decongestants behind counter to slow meth production

Washington County Sheriff Fred Newman credited Warner’s 2005 executive order that required certain over-the-counter decongestants be placed behind the counter in stores with helping to slow the production of methamphetamine in Southwest Virginia. Warner had mentioned the executive order in his speech, touting it as only one of many things he’d done to support law enforcement agencies.

Restricted meth ingredients and reduced meth labs

Recognizing that methamphetamine abuse was a growing problem in Virginia and throughout the country, Governor Warner issued an executive order requiring that ephedrine and pseudoephedrine--decongestants used in the manufacture of methamphetamines--be placed behind the counter in drugstores. His emergency action later was codified into law by the General Assembly. As a result, law enforcement officials reported a decline in the number of methamphetamine labs operating in Virginia.
