Methamphetamine have become the drug of choice for people
that live in the Northwest corner of Arkansas - according
to a two part special report published in the Arkansas
Democrat-Gazette and posted on Arkansas Online.
Bad hillbillies have switched from drinking and making moonshine to shooting and
mixing Meth. The DEA, Arkansas police and a dozen other agencies have joined
together in an attempt to fight this trend, but if I know my hillbilly, this is
just more federal money being pissed down a rat hole in the name of Drug
Enforcement. These hillbillies have been making 90 proof home brew since man
first walked in the Ozarks and decades of Revenuers and G-men haven't been able
to stop them from making their high test, bad tasting whiskey. So it seems
unlikely that they will stop them from making Methamptetamines in the Ozarks.
The cops called their most recent sting against the "Meth Monster" Operation
Daycare as it seems many hillbillies like to use their kids diapers as a
hiding place for this illegal drug or bring their children along when they buy
or sell drugs. Like I said, these are Bad Hillbillies.
The surprising thing is that with all the "local" knowledge in liquor production
you'd figured that this area would be self-sufficient when it comes to producing
its own chemicals... but that is apparently not the case. Massive amounts of
methamptetamines are right now being produced in the "super-labs" in super cool
Southern California and shipped via Interstate 40 to the backwoods of Arkansas.
