Gregg County Meth Crackdown

    Federal authorities will begin working with East Texas law enforcement to crack down on the growing problem of meth-amphetimine production. Drug agents say that most of the ingredients that are used in a meth-lab, can be bought over the counter in products like "Sudafed" and "Robitussin" which contain "Psuedoephedrine".

    County drug agents will be targeting some businesses, like convenience stores, which can sometimes unknowingly provide ingredients for a meth-lab. According to federal authorities, meth use has doubled in the U.S. over the past 5 years.
