The Methamphetamine Registry was created by Public Chapter 18 of the 2005 General Assembly, the Meth-Free Tennessee Act of 2005, and was amended by Public Chapter 911 of the 2012 General Assembly. As amended in 2005, the law read:

Tennessee Code Annotated, § 39-17-436.

Registry of persons convicted of methamphetamine offenses. (a) There is created within the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation a registry of persons convicted of a violation of any of the following offenses: (1) Section 39-17-417 or § 39-17-418 involving any substance listed in § 39-17-408(d)(2); (2)Section 39-17-431; (3) Section 39-17-433; (4) Section 39-17-435; or (5) Conspiracy to commit, attempt to commit, or solicitation to commit any of the offenses listed in subdivisions (a)(1)-(4). Any person convicted of an offense or offenses for which placement on the methamphetamine registry is required shall be prohibited from purchasing a non-exempt product containing any immediate methamphetamine precursor for the entire period such person is required to be on the registry (seven years).

In 2014, the Meth Registry was once again changed by the General Assembly through Public Chapter 732. Starting July 1, 2014, the former "Methamphetamine Registry" will be known as the "Drug Offender Registry" and those convicted of qualifying offenses will be required to remain on the registry for ten (10) years, rather than the seven (7) year period as set out under former law.

The offenses which must be registered beginning July 1, 2014 are:

  • The offense(s) listed in 39-17-418 involving any substance listed in 39-17-408(d)(2);
  • The offense(s) listed in 39-17-431;
  • Any felony offense prohibited by this part (drugs); or
  • Conspiracy to commit, attempt to commit, or solicitation to commit any of the offenses listed above.


The information contained in the registry is provided to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation by the appropriate clerk in each county. The TBI does not independently verify the convictions, and cannot guarantee their accuracy. Therefore, this information should be regarded as a resource suggesting the need for further inquiry.
