Merchants Against Methamphetamine
Please participate with "Merchants Against Methamphetamine". In an effort to reduce the availability of "precursor chemicals", the Partnership for a Drug-Free DeKalb County, Inc. is asking your business to monitor the sale of the following materials. Precursor chemicals are materials used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.
- Ephedrine products
- Myriatic Acid (greater than 28%)
- Coleman Fuel
Production, sale, and use of Methamphetamine are problems in DeKalb County. Please join with us to help monitor the sale of these precursor chemicals. As Project Director for the Partnership, please let me assure you that our group does not want to prevent your business from profiting from the sale of these products to legitimate purchasers, but we do want to reduce the availability of these products to people who intend to use them in the manufacture of illegal drugs. Limiting quantities of the above items will reduce the likelihood that the materials can be used for Methamphetamine production. Ephedrine- please sell only one (1) box to a customer at a time. Another way to prevent drug production would be to carry only wax coated or time released products. Myriatic Acid - Methamphetamine producers have reported that 28% acid cannot be used successfully in production. Heet - gasoline additive - please do not sell in large quantities not suitable for household use. Your help is needed and appreciated. Please join with us to help prevent the manufacture and sale of methamphetamine in DeKalb County.
