I'm so happy that meth hasn't become a big drug in this area, at least not yet. Thankfully it worked out okay for you safety-wise. Did the cops say that you ID'd them enough for an arrest?

Yes and no. I gave them a first and last name for the guy, and description of the vehicles. They hadn't started cooking it yet, do they couldn't charge them for manufacturing, but did have plenty of probable cause to pull them over next time they see them for questioning.

That's surprising. I would have expected that in areas where meth has become a problem there would be laws created against having all of the necessary ingredients in possession at one time under certain circumstances, circumstances which this situation would obviously present.

There are, however the pseudoephedrine pills and batteries were not present making the ingredients list incomplete.

Yes. I think people that use the stuff(in fact I'm sure of it) are actually self medicating for other mental health issues. With meth, even though it gets you high and makes you stay up for a week it can temporarily fix serotonin imbalances etc. That's part of what's so sad about the drug.

Yes. They should be able to get charged even by having the components. I know laws vary greatly from state to state, but in some of the "war on meth" states such as CA, they can prosecute for having X number of items from this list. I have a buddy who owns a hardware store, and he is supposed to call in if someone buys more than 2 items from the list at once. So if they buy muriatic acid and canning jars, he calls them in. Coffee filters and lye, calls them in. You're lucky it's not a problem there, this crap is really terrible.

From what I've heard and read, I know.

My father was a cop here during the crack years and he can tell stories that will blow your mind, even worse than meth stories. Most of my career has been spent dealing with heroin addicts. They're easy: if they get 'rowdy', the preferred tactic is to extend one finger, press it to their forehead, and push them over. Seriously, that's the extent of it most of the time.

Oh my god when people come over my house and have to much homebrew that's what I do too to get them to shut up one finger to the forehead and push ......
