People in Mississippi will need a doctor's prescription to get cold medicine containing pseudoephedrine, under a bill now heading to Governor Haley Barbour for his signature.  Pseudoephedrine is a key ingredient in the illicit drug methamphetamine. Supporters say the measure is designed to curtail the state's escalating meth activity.  Barbour has said he would sign the bill, and the law would go into effect July 1.  Oregon passed a similar law in 2006.
