    Thumbs down Colorado Meth: Arghhhhhh!

    While in Texas this was a rising problem, now Colorado. A great reason to CWP. Hard to reason with a tweeker.

    COLORADO SPRINGS - A new national study on methamphetamine abuse shows the problem in Colorado is considerably higher than in most other states.

    Colorado Attorney General John Suthers released the results of the Rand study Wednesday in Denver. Based on the study, meth abuse is estimated to cost Colorado as much as $1.4 billion each year. Colorado ranks eighth among the 50 states in total meth use. Meth-related property and violent crimes nearly doubled between 2000 and 2005 in Colorado and meth treatment rates are more than two times higher that would be expected given Colorado's relatively small population.

    Lt. Al Harmon is an undercover officer with Metro Vice & Narcotics and is on the front lines of the local battle against meth. "There's been an increase since 2002 in admissions to local hospitals, public treatment facilities" says Lt. Harmon. Harmon goes on to say "violent crimes such as assaults, property crimes which include identity theft, fraud, child neglect...there's not a facet of any crime that it doesn't touch."

    Attorney General John Suthers heads up Colorado's Methamphetamine Task Force, which was scheduled to disband in 2010. Now Suthers plans to ask lawmakers to extend the task force's mission beyond that date.

    Most meth consumed in the US is made in Mexico in pharmaceutical labs. It is much more potent than the homemade stuff.

    From Frontline:

    According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, 65 percent of all meth consumed in the United States now comes from Mexican drug cartels: 53 percent from superlabs in Mexico itself, and 12 percent from Mexican-run superlabs within the U.S.
