    It’s because the “dope” they are doing is not dope. Historically meth was cooked by chemists who were ex military knew the proper recipe well.
    Now fast forward most of the old school true cooks are dead or in jail.
    The new “cooks” have no clue, spray bug spray on glass let it dry scrape and sell. Sure it burns and smells bad…bingo make a ton off nothing.
    TRUE FACT…when I worked at a local lab we tested local “meth” many times to find no amphetamines in it all all!!! Found pcp, cocaine and heroin in what was tested but never any meth. So who knows what they are snorting or slamming. SAD SHIT!!!

    • Too bad it doesn’t kill quicker, problem solved. What lab did you work at?

    • Thank you! It’s important for people to realize not all meth is made the same these days. A few friends kids unfortunately became “testers” for meth batches meaning they’d test the new chemical formula to see how high or dead it got them. Way worse than the military formula!! & no not a conspiracy theory or anti-military rhetoric. They have been making and using meth to keep pilots awake for longer periods of time. It was on the cover of time magazine years ago. May be able to find online if they haven’t hidden/pulled it. The air force got their pilots to stay awake for 36 hours straight flight time with it. Best drug source in the nation that military, ask anyone who has been on a Navy boat.
      And to the other commenter, I’d it killed faster there would be no profit, just like tobacco, alcohol, prescription meds, etc.

  • Rau got popped last year on a West Ave raid with seven total people. I believe there was weed, meth, heroin and cash at that time. Wonder how he got out sooooo fast. Hmmmm!!!! Your son should really be looking up at you as a stand up father figure right now.

  • What would be “packing for transportation of heroin”? balloons?, little bags? TV just tells me its little bags with scorpions on them and such. or maybe it was a scale that said for heroin only?
