Well then, they need to get the message to the meth user and the ones that cook it.

About 90% of the meth in America is cooked up in 'superlabs' IN MEXICO!

Do you have facts on that? In the state of oregon alone meth was the biggest drug they are still dealing with.

OK, it's 80%, not 90%...

Quote:
Methamphetamine consumed in the United States originates from two general sources, controlled by two distinct groups. Most of the methamphetamine consumed in the United States is produced by Mexico-based and California-based Mexican traffickers. These drug trafficking organizations control “super labs” (a laboratory capable of producing 10 pounds or more of methamphetamine within a single production cycle), and have distribution networks throughout the United States, as well as access to drug transportation routes to smuggle the methamphetamine from Mexico into the United States. Current drug lab seizure data suggests that roughly 80 percent of the methamphetamine used in the United States comes from these larger labs, which are increasingly found in Mexico.

These same Mexican criminal organizations control most mid-level and retail methamphetamine distribution in the Pacific, Southwest, and west-central regions of the United States, as well as much of the distribution in the Great Lakes and Southeast regions.

Meth is a home grown drug, just cook it up. I doubt very much that meth is a real problem coming from Mexico. But thanks, here is an atta boy for you !
Sorry Guy, but a good share of people are not on this forum 24/7 but thanks for posting the information.

The testimony I posted AND provided a link to says OTHERWISE, sassyone. Are you delusional or just under the influence of 'Kool-Aid'... ?

To set the record straight: there are significantly fewer Meth labs here in Arizona compared to even 5 years ago-----------people are wising up to them and calling them into the authorities more and more.
