CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — Thanks to tougher U.S. laws, fewer people are cooking up batches of methamphetamine in dangerous homemade labs, but that doesn't mean the supply has dried up. Eighty percent or more of America's supply of the drug now comes from Mexico, law-enforcement officials say.
"These people are not involved to satisfy their own drug habits," U.S. Attorney Russ Dedrick of Knoxville said. "They are involved for money."
"They will be seen more and more," he said. "We will see increased numbers in cases involving foreign nationals."
