CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A cold medicine also used to make meth is no longer sold at some stores in the mountain state.

Rite Aid stores will no longer carry medicine with pseudoephedrine in West Virginia.

Rite Aid says its West Virginia stores continue to sell cold medicines that combine pseudoephedrine and other ingredients, as it is supposed to be harder to use in making meth.

Rite Aid says the company is committed to helping to address the meth problem while serving customers with legitimate medical needs.

The company has the more than 100 stores in West Virginia.
