Meth in Maryland: Another “Sun” Reporting

Though it has been rooted in the Pacific Northwest for many years, meth appears to just be taking its horrible hold on the east coast. In Maryland, for instance, law enforcement have just recently been taught how to detect the drug.

A fascinating article by Baltimore Sun writer Matthew Dolan will be a blast from the past for readers out here in Washington.

In the story, Dolan examines a pair of sheriff’s deputies that are themselves learning to cook meth so they know what to look for when patroling for meth labs.

Amazingly, officers in Maryland discovered only nine meth labs in the entire state, the article says.

Don’t forget that the Kitsap Sun was a harbinger in reporting meth abuse. To read our award-winning series, “The Meth Toll,” click here.
