Haslam to sign bill Monday to crack down on meth production


Republican Governor Bill Haslam will be back in East Tennessee Monday to sign a bill into law to try to end meth production.

It is House Bill 1050, better known as the "I Hate Meth Act."

The bill is named after a Campbell county group of the same name.

The act calls for the use of a statewide electronic log to track the sales of over-the-counter cold and allergy products that contain pseudo-ephedrine.

The measure also calls for felony charges for manufacturing meth in front of children, and increases the penalties for meth-related offenses.

Haslam will sign the bill Monday morning at the Greene county courthouse.
