ILLINOIS -- There's a push to crack down on people using over-the-counter medication to make illegal drugs. A new bill aims to make medicines, like Sudafed, prescription only.

That's because the active ingredient is also the main ingredient in methamphetamine. Supporters say this will help put a stop to meth labs, but critics say there are already enough restrictions on the medicine.
