 Seven Pharmacists Barred from Selling
Queensland pharmacists who used to sell drugs laden with excess pseudoephedrine (PSE) have been caught out and the government has banned seven pharmacists from selling such products.

Pseudoephedrine is commonly used in cold tablets, but it is also an ingredient of the banned substance "ice."

"Those pharmacists couldn't adequately explain to authorities why they had excessive amounts of PSE medications," said State Health Minister Stephen Robertso.

He added that the chemists were caught out by a special taskforce over a period of 18 months.
