It won't be that easy to head to the store and buy Sudafed or similar cold medications. Wisconsin lawmakers want to limit the sale of cold medicines containing a common ingredient in methamphetamine.

They're hoping to prevent "meth lab border-hopping" by making Wisconsin laws more consistent with those in neighboring states.

Illinois started to restrict consumer access in January. The proposal would require stores to keep cold medicines behind the counter and to restrict the amount sold.

Wisconsin law enforcement officials have busted an increasing number of Meth labs in recent years from eight in 1999 to about 90 last year.
