The world's largest retail store is helping to clamp down on methamphetaminemakers.

Wal-mart will move many non-prescription cold medications behind the counter by June. They're goal is to make it more difficult for customers to easily obtain medications containing pseudoephedrine, which is a key component for making methamphetamine.

Experts said 1.5 million people in the United States are addicted to this powerful drug.
