MCALESTER, Oklahoma -- The McAlester City Council may decide Tuesday night to rescind an ordinance it approved in mid-June making it illegal to sell pseudoephedrine without a prescription.
The agenda item comes after a ruling in July by Oklahoma's Attorney General.
Pseudoephedrine is considered a key ingredient in making methamphetamine.
McAlester city councilor Sam Mason has put an item on their August 9, 2011 agenda to vote on rescinding the city ordinance approved in June.
McAlester was the fourth city in the state to approve the anti-pseudoephedrine tablet ordinance.
An Attorney General Scott Pruitt opinion says cities and towns aren't authorized to enact ordinances barring non-prescription sales of products containing pseudoephedrine.
The city council meeting is at 6 p.m. at McAlester's city hall.
