Fewer meth labs, bills for cleanup, re­port finds

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

Il­le­gal metham­phetamine labs have be­come scarcer and their fed­er­ally funded cleanups cheaper, a new re­port shows. In­ves­ti­ga­tors at­tribute the de­cline to the law that made it harder to buy key chem­i­cals used in il­licit drug pro­duc­tion. The re­port doesn’t in­di­cate whether meth use has de­clined in the U.S. In re­cent years, the U.N. Of­fice on Drugs and Crime noted late last month, meth pro­duc­tion “was dis­placed over the border to Mex­ico.”
