6.5 Clandestine Methamphetamine Labs Seizures

The discovery of clandestine methamphetamine labs attests to the presence of crystal methamphetamine in the area.  Law enforcement officers in Indiana have found that the primary motivation of those individuals mounting methamphetamine labs in this state has been to support their personal addiction rather than to create a market for sales.  Nonetheless, the presence of the labs creates the impetus for selling the drug and creates sources for obtaining the drug in the  community.
