A startling article featured last week in the Tulsa World reveals that the number of meth labs being dismantled by the Tulsa police is actually increasing! The article includes a 2010 map portraying the amount of meth lab cases reported to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and a breakdown of the number of meth labs cleaned up in Tulsa County during the previous year.
Methamphetamine is an odorless drug that is extremely addictive and can significantly alter brain functions. In November 2010, the Oklahoma Senate approved House Bill 3380 creating a statewide Methamphetamine Offender Registry.
