Fenton is one of the top spots in the state of Missouri to buy Meth making materials. Three of the top five retailers selling the most pseudophedrine in Missouri are in Fenton. According to a list compiled by the Franklin county sheriff's department, cooks who make methamphetamine in Jefferson and Franklin counties are apparently coming to St. Louis County to buy the cold medicine.

The reason is that, while other counties require a prescription for pseudophedrine, St. Louis County does not.

Now, Fenton is considering making pseudophedrine cold medicine, only available by prescription only.
