Methamphetamine DEA


DES MOINES – The Iowa Department of Public Health has released a report on Iowa’s efforts to improve the health of Iowans and says that one of the most destructive drugs some Iowans use – methamphetamine –  is in decline.

The report claims that fewer meth labs have been seized; “a reflection of the reduced availability of the drug”.

The report says that “meth labs have decreased.”  One of Iowa’s goals was to initiate and support statewide efforts to reduce methamphetamine manufacturing.

Law enforcement continues to pursue those that possess meth and especially those that manufacture and distribute it.

The Iowa Department of Public Safety collected reports of 290 methamphetamine labs seized in 2013, down from 382 in 2012, and about 80% below Iowa’s meth lab high water mark of 1,500 in 2004.


Should it be law in Iowa that those riding on a motorcycle be required to wear a helmet?
