CHARLESTON - A state task force suggested that West Virginia should require prescriptions for cold medicines that contain an ingredient used illegally to make methamphetamine.

This recommendation was just one of several approved Wednesday by the Governor's Advisory Council on Substance Abuse.  The council also suggested that Governor Earl Ray Tomblin should oppose any legislation that would legalize marijuana for medical or recreational use. 

House Health Committee Chairman Don Perdue said the council's Pseudoephedrine recommendation was good news.  Perdue planned to introduce such legislation in January.
