Drug Cultivation in Arizona
According to the 2012 World Drug Report released by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, an estimated 5 percent of the world’s population has consumed an illegal drug. That amounts to roughly 230 million people (about ten times the distance in miles to the sun) and a $321 billion a year industry (a hair short of 1% of the worlds commerce).
Methamphetamine is considered in recent years as one of the fastest growing and most profitable drugs on the market. Being that it can be manufactured at home with a combination of medicine and everyday cleaning products, many people dangerously use their own garages for production more infamously known as a Meth Lab.
Though in recent years, Meth Labs nationally have been in decline, Arizona is one of the few states actually on the rise. This is evident in everyday news reports of law enforcement drug busts across the state.
This week alone a married couple in Sun City was arrested for running two Meth Labs in the home where they and their three children lived. Aside from their kids being taken into custody by the state, the couple faces felony drug charges that could lock them away for a very long time.
