All methed up

Apparently, "meth trash" doesn't refer to the slimeballs who make the stuff:

But this Spring Indiana State Police want you to keep an extra eye on that bag of trash. There may be hidden dangers inside.

Smith says "Some of this stuff, like anhydrous that is used [in making Methamphetamine], if there was any of that left in the bottle or container and someone inhaled that, it could almost kill you instantly."

[. . .]

Indiana State Police say there are some ways to spot Meth trash. If you see large amounts of battery cases, bottles, foil, and coffee filters that have been dyed pink.  Also look for bottles for household chemicals, like Windex or bleach.

And if you come across a pile of Meth trash, police say do NOT touch it. Do NOT try to get rid of it. Just call the police department.

Ah, the joys of urban living. Remember the good old days -- before the growth of movile labs allowing the stuff to be cooked anywhere -- when meth was a rural problem?

It's too bad there isn't some sort of plant or something people could legally grow if they wanted to get high...

You can't get away from crime, as long as it's permitted (in some fashion) to "come to you", wherever that might be.

Now, we're seeing drug dealers have left the city (except for buy, stash and money houses, which can be had for a song & a dance in some parts of cities) in lieu of those nice, UPSCALE neighborhoods in decent developments.
(where all the decent people FLED to when their neighborhood were all but "taken over")

"Coming to neighborhood near YOU"...seems I said something just like that...quite a while back.
And I wasn't referring to the latest cinema release.

Who knew?
