LANSING, MI (WTVB) - State laws to cut down on meth production are getting stiffer. One of the bills signed Thursday by Governor Snyder increases the penalties for buying pseudoephedrine or ephedrine knowing it will be used to cook meth to up to five years in prison. Other bills tackle what's called "smurfing," which is when someone convinces another person to obtain those meth ingredients. Being convicted of that carries a maximum sentence of ten years in prison.
