Meth Labs On The Rise

Texas now ranks fifth in the nation for the amount of meth labs that law enforcement have broken up. DPS Narcotics Lt. Mark Milanovich says the labs are on the rise, "Especially this year. At one point in time we've taken down six labs in two weeks."

Cooked in containers, makeshift labs are usually in someone's house, and their popping up all over East Texas.

In just two hours a large amount can be made. Its quick production makes the drug more accessible, and the labs more common.
