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.
