November 29, 2009 12:00:00 AM PST
Los Angeles County is cracking down on meth makers by supporting a bill requiring ID to buy products containing certain chemicals.Sheriff Lee Baca and other law enforcement officials are backing a bill that would require identification from anyone buying over the counter products that contain chemicals used to make methamphetamine.

Their personal information would then be stored in a database.

The ACLU worries that such databases could be misused by authorities and pharmaceutical companies looking to specifically target certain customers.
