Tennessee Methlab Homes

Methamphetamine is destroying Tennessee communities at an alarming rate. In 2000, the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency reported 239 clandestine labs seizures in the state. For the first six months of 2004, that number had skyrocketed to more than 1,000, not including those labs seized during the latter part of the year. DCS estimates that more than 700 children will be removed from the home this year due to their parents meth use.

Clearly, this home-made drug is destroying Tennessee families, contaminating our environment and creating a type of violent and erratic criminal rarely seen by law enforcement. Meth is an epidemic Tennesseans can’t afford to ignore.
