MISSOURI REMAINS METH CAPITAL!!!
Another tragic look at the never-ending drug war and lack of progress as we fight it:
Missouri is on pace to lead the nation again with a potentially record-setting number of meth lab seizures in 2012 . . .
Money quote . . .
"Methamphetamine labs seized by law enforcement hit 1,250 by Sept. 1, according to statistics released by the Missouri State Highway Patrol. With four months of data remaining to collect, Missouri was the only state to hit quadruple digits, with 315 more busts than second-place Tennessee and an almost certainty of surpassing last year's 2,096 total."
And what might be important here is that, while the demographics of the Meth Trade are increasingly diverse . . . Let's not deny the fact that METH IS A DRUG THAT WHITE PEOPLE ENJOY AND DEAL AS MUCH AS ANYBODY . . . So, clearly this State's most prevalent drug problem doesn't have to do as much with demographics as racists have suspected or claimed.
