Monday brought a not-so-friendly reminder that smurfing will not be tolerated in Indiana.
A new public awareness campaign has been launched to discourage those who purchase over the counter cold and allergy medicines and pass them on to makers of methamphetamine.
Signs at your local pharmacy now serve as a reminder that smurfing is a serious crime.
“So this is a public message we want to give fair notice so if people don't know that the new statute makes this process calling smurfing a felony,” said Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller. “They are now on notice.”
Smurfing is considered a D-felony in Indiana and is punishable by up to three years behind bars.
