LUTHERVILLE, Md., Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI) today lauded the latest results achieved by the real-time, pseudoephedrine (PSE) blocking system in Kentucky. The system, known as the National Precursor Log Exchange (NPLEx), automatically blocks unlawful PSE sales and helps law enforcement officials track down meth offenders and make arrests. Data released by NPLEx shows electronic technology in Kentucky blocked the sale of more than 23,478 boxes of medicine containing PSE during the first seven months of 2014, preventing more than 60,032 grams from potentially being diverted by meth criminals.
Additionally, when compared to the same period in 2013, Kentucky sold 12.97% fewer boxes of PSE and reduced the number of individual purchasers by 10.76%.
"Since Kentucky adopted NPLEx several years ago, the system has become an indispensable tool for law enforcement officials across the state," said Charles F. Cichon, executive director of the NADDI. "NPLEx gives police the ability to track suspicious purchases of PSE directly from their smart phones, leading to faster arrests and convictions. At the same time, it allows retailers to block the illegal sale of PSE before it ever leaves the store."
"Kentucky is finally seeing long-term success in its targeting of domestic meth criminals. This is welcome news for all Kentucky lawmakers, who can now shift their attention to tackling the ongoing issues of drug addiction and the increase in imported Mexican-made meth."
The National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that facilitates cooperation between law enforcement, healthcare professionals, state regulatory agencies, pharmaceutical manufacturers in the investigation and prevention of prescription drug abuse and diversion. NADDI also sponsors and conducts specialized educational seminars and conferences.
