Ephedra Banned in Lincoln

LINCOLN, Ill.--As reported in an Associated Press story dated March 18, the city council here voted to ban the sale of ephedra products to minors after a 16-year-old high school athlete died from allegedly taking the supplement. The youth's father, Kevin Riggins, is currently lobbying for state and federal ephedra bans. According to the article, Rep. Bill Mitchell (R-Forsyth) has predicted a state ban on ephedra will probably be approved by the state's House and Senate in the coming months.
