INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- State lawmakers are considering a bill that would limit the amount of certain cold medications that can be bought.

The bill that would hopefully put a dent in Indiana's meth problem, was approved last month by the state Senate. It would allow the purchase of up to 61 grams a year of ephedrine and pseudoephedrine.

The bill would also increase the jail time for anyone who buys more than 10 grams of the medications and gives it to someone else who is making meth.
