Methamphetamine Offenders Registry Act
Oklahoma is known for being one of the top states for methamphetamine-related crimes including:
- • Production
- • Possession
- • Trafficking
- • Intent to distribute
Oklahoma has retaliated by strengthening laws related to methamphetamine crimes. After an individual has plead guilty to or been found guilty of a meth-related offense, he or she will be placed on the Oklahoma Methamphetamine Offender Registry Act.
The purpose of the Oklahoma Methamphetamine Offender Registry Act is three-fold:
- • Assigns those to the Registry who are convicted of or plead guilty to any methamphetamine-related crime
- • Tracks known meth offenders
- • Makes it a criminal offense for those on the Registry to possess, purchase, or be in control of any amount of pseudoephedrine, even with a prescription
