The Florida Methamphetamine Precursor Electronic Monitoring System provides retailers and law enforcement with a comprehensive system that tracks all sales of ephedrine and related compounds, and blocks sales that are over the legal amount.
 
New Florida Methamphetamine Law
 
The 2010 Florida Legislature passed Florida Statute 893.1495 to control the sale and purchase of ephedrine and related compounds.  The law:

Establishes legal limits for the sale and purchase of these products
*
Requires Florida retailers who sell the products to electronically submit certain purchaser and transaction information to a statewide database,
*
Allows retailers that do not have a computer with internet access and do not sell more than 72 grams of ephedrine in a 30-day period to Request an Exemption from reporting requirements
*
Mandates FDLE to adopt Rules for implementation (Rule 11D-2.005- Notice of Rule Development)
*
Makes FDLE responsible for selecting a provider for the central monitoring system
FDLE selected the National Precursor Log Exchange (NPLEx) to provide Florida pharmacies/retailers with a no cost method to comply with Florida’s electronic reporting requirements
