Little known fact- meth is actually naturally occurring in a species of Acacia found in Texas.

There you go, meth heads. Take the five dollars out of your underwear and start hitching.

And to Texas- you're welcome.

Interesting, the 10 states named the most depressing on a list posted in another thread rank very high on the above list for Meth labs.

If anyone is interested in learning some interesting stuff about meth and has netflix, there is a National Geographic documentary on there called "The World's Most Dangerous Drug." It's interesting to say the least.

For Kentucky, "Jefferson County", is not some rural backwater. This is Louisville and most of its suburbs.

The next interesting thing would be the geographical distribution of meth labs within the county.

(for Indiana, Bartholomew County is Columbus, which is a small industrial city, and surrounding farm country. Again, not some rural backwater).

It looks to me like this is a list of the counties in which the police have most diligently looked for meth labs. Which says nothing about how many meth labs are or were actually there.

An extremely faulty set of statistics, with not a word about the the methodology.

I would never touch meth, but I love to watch documentries on youtube about it. Well, I like to watch documentries about all sorts of drugs, and crime and stuff, but I noticed meth is pushing hard to become drug number one in the USA, taking the place of cocaine and heroine.

The reasons are very simple: easy to cook , you can get all the ingredients in a wallmart, and then you get a high stronger and longer than the one you get from cocaine, at a very cheap price.

I don´t wanna talk about conpiracies, but the main responables for this is the drug industry and their cold medicines with "ephedrine", the main active ingredient to make meth.

Remove those medicines, you remove meth.


It's all politics.
