Yep, Bullitt County is the armpit of this region. Not to say that the Louisville region is all that great anyway but it seems that there is a line somewhere around Bardstown Road that everything to the South is a dump and to the west is ghetto or white trash.

Surprise - in Louisville again: see links:
Here is TWO WHOLE pages of Meth busts in Louisville THIS year. Sometimes as many as two a day:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- According to Metro Police, in 2008 they busted 93 meth labs -- that's one meth lab about every four days, and police said it was a record. "Louisville is No. 1 in the state for meth labs, three years in a row," said Sgt. Stanley Salyards of the Louisville Metro Police Department Narcotics Unit.

Louisville is currently on pace to reach a triple-digit number of meth labs this year.

Salyards said the city is currently on pace to reach a triple-digit number of meth labs this year. Consequently, it's no surprise to many that the cost of cleaning up those labs is also on the rise.

Since a 1/4 of kentucky's population is in Louisville. I expect there to be drug issues. There are always going to be such issues when you have a high population. It does not mean the Louisville metro area is a bad area or trashy, or anything of that nature. math labs are just one stat of many stats. Since most of kentucky's cities number 30,000 people or less and near 2.5 million people live in the louisville metro region, hard to compare it to the rest of kentucky. Louisville and Lexington are the driving economic forces of kentucky, without those 2 areas kentucky would be nothing but mining and cows and horse racing
