Methamphetamine specific laws were just too late. Pill control was crucial in stopping the manufacturing of methamphetamine, but now it simply comes in from Mexico, unfettered and in a pure amount. Every client of mine says that in 2017 methamphetamine is only 20% or less of what it cost in 2015. Be aware of these laws.  

Take a look at Uncle Festers "Secret of Methamphetamine Manufacture." This book was alleged to have always been found in the "meth cook" area. If you read into this book and it doesn't have to be very far, you will realize how complicated the science is in regards to making the drug.  

In fact, after pill control and the decline, ultimately demise of stateside manufacturing methamphetamine, the "one pot" method was often found, well, EVERYWHERE. There was never any evidence presented in evidence show that it would actually be effective or successful. By: Brendan McLeod
