Tuscaloosa County begins new 'smurfing' crackdown

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

On Monday, elected officials from Tuscaloosa County, law enforcement and people from the private sector are coming together for a common goal. It is to crack down on something called ‘smurfing.' ‘Smurfing' is a term used to describe the purchase of products, like pseudoephedrine drugs to make meth.

This group will be announcing a new campaign to fight smurfing and talking about their ongoing efforts against making and using meth in the Tuscaloosa area. It is part of a larger statewide anti-smurfing effort from the state attorney general's office.

Another issue the group will be talking about is some progress in the fight against meth, found in new research on drug use in Alabama. The announcement will be made Monday morning at 10 a.m. at the Tuscaloosa Drug Company on Veterans Memorial Parkway.
