Congratulations Missouri… You’re Not the Meth Capital of the U.S.!
Ever since 2003, one state has stood out above the rest as the Meth Capital of the United States. And that state is… Missouri.
But that has finally changed. As the numbers are coming in for 2010, Missouri did NOT have the most meth labs. Nope… TENNESSEE has now taken over as the Meth Capital of the U.S.
Tennessee had 2,082 meth lab incidents in 2010, up 41% from 2009. That beat out Missouri’s 1,960 meth lab incidents. Most other states haven’t released their data yet, so there’s a chance Tennessee’s reign could be a short one… but I’ve been to Tennessee, and I doubt it!
