States push for ephedra restrictions.

  Although a proposed ban on ephedra was rejected in Texas, other states with ephedra legislation pending are California, Indiana, Virginia, Vermont, Illinois, Hawaii, Iowa, New York, New Hampshire, Montana, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts. Ephedra product manufacturers urge legislators to follow the example set by Montana's bill, which exempts dietary supplements from the law restricting over-the-counter sale of ephedrine products. Some ephedra manufacturers are already following AHPA recommendations to list on labels specific conditions that could result from improper product use. NNFA and other groups have urged FDA to establish ephedra regulations, but no regulations have yet been issued.
