WEST VIRGINIA -

     Some Rite Aid stores in West Virginia will no longer be selling Pseudoephedrine.

     A spokesperson for the company says rite aid is working to address the meth problem.

     The stores will no longer sell medication that has Pseudoephedrine as its only active ingredient, but they will sell cold medicines that combine Pseudoephedrine with other ingredients.

     Rite Aid has more than 100 stores in West Virginia. The drug store chain plans to evaluate the policy before making similar changes in other states.
