Description

Governing Magazine reports on the wide spread use of methamphetamine and the increasing number of meth labs in the Midwest. Trying to secure the homemade drug has been "a difficult and costly job for law enforcement agencies in many states. . . Each pound of meth generates five to six pounds of toxic waste. . . It usually costs from $5,000 to $10,000 each time" to clean up. And as the number of meth labs increase, so does the demand for local law enforcement. Reporter Ellen Perlman investigates meth labs and the new laws many states have adopted to fight against the problem.
