Break it down for me punk, where are the guidelines in place to legally manufacture meth'? Site your source, I can't believe you can manipulate your paws to actually put this s*** out there!?! Just a sorry state of affairs when the users make it 'legal' to manufacture something illegal! Thanx.

      Can you please cite the academic literature with your classification system of derogatory names such as hoodrat. Also, I am going to need the lab analysis that defines the odor. Since you have previosuly aspoused that everyones opinion is meaningless without citation...I choose to invalidate everything you say.

    You obviously have no clue what meth is, or how it is manufactured.... and last I checked.. still illegal.

      Yeah, right. I have no clue, having only a) been there at the time, and b) done some actual research in actual textbooks over the intervening decades. But I take comfort in the knowledge that compared to me, you are COMPLETELY ignorant...

    There's way more meth in Perry now than there was when it was still easy to get by prescription. Makes you wonder why they made it illegal.

      I will give you five reasons: The Hell's Angels MC, The Outlaws MC, The Banditos MC, The Warlocks MC, The Sons of Silence MC. Those are the top 5, there are hundreds more.

        So you are saying these gangs needed money, so the govt made speed illegal to give them an inexhaustible source of cash?

    I'm so glad they got caught. Meth is horrible as they have found out. At least they can't make it or give it to anyone else for awhile. Amanda's FB profile says she is a stay at home mom. I would like to be a stay at home mom but I actually work for a living, I guess taking the easy way out didn't work for these 7. One guy was a welder, he had the potential to make a good honest living, what the hell were they thinking? Meth is going to be the downfall of white people. It seems to be the white trash drug of choice these days. Come on white people, respect yourself, respect your children, stop this stupid stuff. Everybody know that black people smoke crack, why are the white people linking themselves to this drug. You are better than that, start acting like it!

      So you are saying Crack is OK? I'm very confused here? "Come on white people" umm... I happen to be white and I've never even seen the stuff nor had anyone try to get me to use it so I suggest you take your ignorant self back to the hood and worry about your crack, lol since that's what "black people smoke".. Guess just Asian people shoot heroin huh? omg!! Ignorance is truly bliss!
