I'm pretty sure the rural areas in every state have a meth problem.

I don't know if it's still the case, but Albuquerque, NM used to have the highest number of meth labs per capita of any US city.

I saw Winter's Bone, so I'll buy into the Ozarks.

And to 2nd the "thank god it wasn't a DG course"...they would've probably found a portajohn with a funny light, CO2, and trays of water/fertilizer solution.

This is true, with the exception of either Washington State, or Oregon. One of those two finally passed a law where they keep Sudafed behind the counter, limit the number of packs you can buy, and make you show ID when you buy it. Their meth lab population dropped like a rock.

I think a lot of states have done this. I know Minnesota has had laws like this for almost 10 years now.

We have those same laws here in South Carolina and we still have a lot of tweakers. I know we have those laws because I was out at a bar a few months ago grabbing my ID from my buddy's car. A guy came up behind me and asked me if I had my ID. He said he'd give me ten bucks if I went up to CVS with him and got him some cold medicine because he has a really bad cold and you can only buy like two a month.

If this was on a disc golf course, the course would probably get pulled asap, and have the stigma of being a tweaker sport forever.

Man, that's a scary story.

My info must be old. I read a long article about the meth industry, I thought recently, but it may have been longer ago than I'm thinking.

I know that many states had been trying to severely curtail the illicit purchase of pseudoephedrine, but that the pharmacuetical lobby was squashing the laws left and right...especially attempts to pull the products off the shelf and move them behind the counter in convenience stores. Maybe what I'm thinking of are the attempts to make pseudoephedrine-containing cold medicines available by perscription only.

Wow, didn't think I'd get into a meth thread on here.
