North Carolina AG to discuss meth lab busts

READ MORE:

RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- Attorney General Roy Cooper is scheduled to hold a news conference detailing the latest statistics on meth lab busts.

Cooper's news conference is slated for Tuesday in Raleigh.

The attorney general will also provide an update on how North Carolina is using technology to stop illegal sales of the key ingredient needed to make meth. SBI agents are also set to present models of one pot meth labs, a new method for making the drug.

Meth is a potent stimulant that can be created from over-the-counter household products, often leaving behind a toxic mess.

A legislative committee in North Carolina voted unanimously last month for lawmakers to consider a law requiring a prescription for cold medicines containing pseudoephedrine, a key ingredient in making meth.

Meth Labs in NC

Unfortuniately -- Meth Labs, LSD, Crack Cocaine, Heroin, PCP's, Pot, hashish, ect. -- even Moonshine Whiskey has become a part of 'the American Culture'. Even smokeing cigarettes . The crux to all of this is determined in the D.C. Social Political Circles --as to what is " socially acceptable " and what is not --within the Inner 495 BeltWay - as well as what Hollywood does.

People are going to still use illegal drugs - and as generation of young adults to new generations, their morals change from year to year -- so will the habits. and - the medias exploit these changes in trends thru Hollywood Stars and their illegal drug useage -- ie; Whitney Houstonis the best example. All of the other movie stars are caught with cocaine, drugs so often -- that its really not newsworthy anymore. Just a 'way of life' in California.

All Law Enf. can do is cope with the problem as it gets bigger as population grows -- and laws are now becomeing more liberal and permissive. Its what society wants -- so, society gets what they want. And only when the supporters of Illegal Drug & Cultures become themselves -- victimized -- nothing will really change.
