I thought since many of you folks work in such bigger cities you'd know more about it because you've seen it more in you population maybe?
Can't answer your questions but I thought you might be interested to know that methamphetamine is becoming more of a scourge in rural areas--the midwest and the south, in particular--than in the big cities. One reason is that urban locations have so many choices on the "menu." Meth is cheap (comparitively) and simple enough for a real bonehead to cook. But I'm guessing the biggest reason is that cooking meth reeks in a very telltale way. Clandestine labs are commonly found in isolated trailers, cabins, barns, run-down houses and garages where the neighbors aren't likely to complain about the horrendous smell.
A law enforcement dude of some type was being interviewed on a news show yesterday, and he said that in his rural county of fewer than 60,000, he guessed there might be as many as 50 clan labs at any given time.
In a town of about 8,000 about ten miles from where I live, some eejit decided he'd cook himself a nice batch o' meth in his upstairs apartment. Only problem was, one of the first floor businesses was a shop that specialized in police equipment. Didn't take long before someone got a whiff and Mr. Meth-boyardee had his sorry ashcan hauled off to jail. Sheesh, how dumb can you get?
