If you want to score some easy meth, looks like Tulsa OK is the place to go.

First hint: You see a guy in a chicken suit handing out fliers for a new restaurant coming soon.

Go home, Tulsa.  You're high.
 
2013-02-12 09:50:04 AM
hah.  what I expected.  I must be 'Johhny Methseed', spreading my seed to grow wherever I go.

Map's wrong. I know of at least one lab that was busted a few years back in my high school's county, but it's showing 0.

Miami co Ohio now hiring

Looks like my lab in White Plain NV is still unknown.
 
2013-02-12 09:51:48 AM
FINALLY!! Tulsa is number 1 at something.  Id be interested to see the number of copper / window unit thefts they have compared to the rest of the country.
 
2013-02-12 09:54:04 AM
Interesting how concentrated these are in the midwest.....where kids are bored and no one wants to work on the farm.

I think that is woefully inaccurate, considering how many meth lab busts there have been up in the Northern Lower Peninsula of Michigan lately.

CSB1: At the end of the road I grew up on, they busted a meth lab. The police took two people to jail. One, when he got to the jail but before having a cavity search, took a bag of meth out of his butt and tried swallowing it. The bag exploded and he passed away. Whenever I have a bad day I think about dying with a bag of shiatty meth in my mouth.

CSB2: I work in one of the lowest income counties in the NLP of Michigan. Last week I had to call in a pharmacist twice so the police could get access to our pseudophedrine logs, while our store was very busy. Apparently the county has not trained all its officers to be able to get on NPLEX, which is a national database of sales. Keep in mind I work at a grocery store with a pharmacy attached, so I was trying to run the store as well as find a pharmacist able to come in fairly late at night.

/One of the officers also had a french fry stuck in his uniform. His new nickname is now Officer Frenchfry.

I live in southern IN, so I am pretty sure there are plenty not too far away.

However, the old hometown is #1 - Tulsa had to be good at something, I suppose...

It's nice to see that Albuquerque is in the bluer realm. Thanks, Mr Fring, Walt, and Jesse

Jones County Texas 0

Um....yeah.
 
2013-02-12 10:04:58 AM
For those noticing discrepancies, it's sourced from the DEA.  I'm sure there is quite a bit of state level enforcement that doesn't make it into the data.
 
2013-02-12 10:06:09 AM
I live in Tulsa County, not getting a kick, etc.

I'll be in my lab?

Move on.  Move on.  Or take a stroll down 11th again, *then* move on.

Am i the only one who sees a business opportunity in their hometown?

I like how TFA is under "Business News."

thurstonxhowell: Map's wrong. I know of at least one lab that was busted a few years back in my high school's county, but it's showing 0.


The page says that locations are shown on the map until local law enforcement reports that the site has been decontaminated or demolished.  So a site found several years ago has probably been cleaned up and removed.

Ah, my bad. Apparently, 2 sentences of fine print is too much for me.

I'm shocked the Calif high desert area I live in is so pedestrian. This place was legendary a few years ago.
 
2013-02-12 10:35:23 AM
Wow, I lived in NE Ohio until about 9 months ago. I had no idea it was that bad.

In SD now. I am actually surprised that there are not more showing...
 
2013-02-12 10:37:49 AM
Oh San Bernardino, my home county.  The meth capital.  It was a nightly occurrence working in retail/pizza/grocery that we would have some tweaker come in and cause trouble.  I do not miss it.
 
2013-02-12 10:44:54 AM
Doesn't look like meth is too popular around here. Maybe we should try and outreach program.

I think the 109 figure is a ringer.

None in Harlan County, KY.  Either they're just good at hiding them or Boyd Crowder's Oxycodone business has done a great job of forcing them out of there.

Apparent best places to live, if you don't want to live near an identified, contaminated meth lab:

Seven in Hawai'i.
Five in Maryland.
Two in Vermont.
Two in Delaware.
Zero in District of Colombia.
 
2013-02-12 11:03:55 AM
Oops. I missed Rhode Island and Providence Plantations (2).
 
2013-02-12 11:05:13 AM

paswa17: Zero in District of Colombia.


They just aren't trying hard enough! Or maybe they think Capitol Hill is contamination enough for the District.

2013-02-12 11:13:12 AM
The map really does show that meth is a redneck problem. I wonder why?
 
2013-02-12 12:34:38 PM
One Lab in the 4 counties that claim Aurora, IL, great news its in DuPage County where my sliver of a sub-division is located in.
 
2013-02-12 02:16:20 PM
I live in a big county. I really doubt there are any meth labs that I would consider "near" to me.

Of course I could be wrong
 
2013-02-12 02:44:17 PM
Wow, that map reads like the location list for COPS Greatest Hits, volumes 1, 2, and 6.
 
2013-02-12 02:50:03 PM
Huh, my county is appearing as having one of the highest densities...I woulda never thought.

I don't see evidence of it TOO much around here although I know it is a problem...and many of the places I go fish I woulda sworn had way WAY WAY higher rate of incidence.
 
2013-02-12 08:16:58 PM
there's 25 in my county, but i wanna know if any are close to me, this is not very helpful without any addresses.
 
2013-02-12 09:42:27 PM
Best thing the US ever outsourced to Mexico.
 
2013-02-12 11:10:56 PM
San Joaquin county, 17 meth labs and center of the known universe.

KilaKitu: Interesting how concentrated these are in the midwest.....where kids are bored and no one wants to work on the farm.


That term "mid-west" has always irked the shiat out of me. It makes no sense whatsoever.  The western part of the country would be everything left of a vertical line drawn up the middle (more or less starting from the bottom tip of Texas).  The mid west should be the states in the middle of that western region (Utah, Az, Idaho, etc).  How in the hell did the middle eastern section of the country get to be called the mid west?  Even if it made sense at some point in time why have folks not adjusted the terminology since 150 or so years ago?
