What does it mean that cough and cold tablets containing pseudoephedrine and tablets containing ephedrine with other ingredients are schedule V controlled substances?

It has been found that solid dosage forms of over the counter (OTC) pseudoephedrine and multi-ingredient ephedrine products are used to illegally manufacture methamphetamine. A law was passed that added these products to the list of Schedule V controlled substances and requires that they may only be sold in pharmacies. Only a pharmacist or a registered pharmacy technician may sell the products. OTC cough and cold medicine in liquid and liquid-filled gel capsule forms are exempt from this scheduling action.
