IPFW joins effort to fight smurfing

The Journal Gazette

An anti-smurfing campaign has been launched on the IPFW campus, part of a national effort to raise awareness of the illegal practice related to methamphetamine production.

Smurfing, which refers to buying cold and allergy medicines containing pseudoephedrine for others to use to make meth, can lead to a felony conviction.

Posters educating students about the dangers and consequences of smurfing will be displayed across the IPFW campus beginning Sunday. The campaign is being coordinated by IPFW’s Center for Healthy Living, IPFW Peer Educators and the Consumer Healthcare Products Association.
