The bill increases prison time from 1 year or more to up to 15 years. The bill states that individuals convicted of the felony charge may be fined up to $25,000.
Sen. Clark Barnes asked Monday if the bill would include pseudoephedrine if the Senate bill to make Sudafed-like drugs prescription only passes in the House.

On Tuesday, the Senate approved an amendment to exclude pseudoephedrine and the bill was passed unanimously.
The bill will move to the House.
