Prohibition? Yeah, you can whup up prohibition on junk like that anytime. It was all funny and stuff when I was rockin' and rollin' and doing whatever I felt like at the time, but now I am raising two kids here in the Bible-and-Meth Belt in Northeast Alabama and I shudder to think what's gonna happen when they get to that 'experimental' age. I know you gotta do what you can do to instill some caution into them, but that crap is so prevalent here...
Yep here in WA. Meth is the Bubba's drug of choice. While trendy urban King County folks prefer BC bud and designer drugs. In rural King County,Meth is a plague. King County is very large county in terms of land area, 2,307 square miles. It is also the 12 most populus county in the nation at 1.7 million folks. So it is diverse. Because of its hilly evergreen forest covered terrain there also lots of hiding spots for Meth labs. I doubt the Meth traffic has slowed down at all the trafficers are just more becoming more sophisticated using RVs for mobile labs etc. King County Sheriff Dept does a great job but there job is large.
Not that I think dealing meth is a good thing, but trying to stamp out its use through prohibition, and arrests is tantamount to stepping on jello. It will always just ooze out somewhere else. The only reason that the Banditos, or anyone else is dealing meth is because of the false value, and therefore high profit margin artificially induced by the governments counter productive and short sighted policy. I do however resent that the public at large may perceive that the bulk of meth production is caused by a few motorcyclists. The plain truth is that Mexican drug cartels are now the producers of the vast majority of methamphetamine. VWW
What? You're one of those. How could you possibly assign fault to conservatives?
I'm sure they keep blocking new laws in order to keep all of the good liberals too f#ked up to vote or in jail with a felony charge.....oh yeah, they can vote after they have been charged with a felony, while in jail and only if regestered a demo.
Ephedrine or pseudoephedrine, red phosphorous, hydrochloric acid, drain cleaner, battery acid, lye, lantern fuel, and antifreeze.
Yeah, I can see the CEO of Prestone calling his lobbyists to get on the Hill and stop that push to block meth. distribution. Profits will sink if we can't sell to the meth labs.
We buy 14 Million cars a year in this country. I can't possibly fathom how meth production would account for even a small fraction of a percent of antifreeze . Same goes for the other ingredient sales.
Go to a rural state, like Iowa, and talk to the folks about Meth. It's a real problem. You don't use it once. It's highly addictive.
Better yet, maybe you'd be for a meth lab next door to your house. See how that affects you. Better yet, you try it, and see how it affects you, then get back to us. Tell us its something for the greater good.
