Attorney Generals Say Most Meth Labs Have Been Forced Overseas

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Attorneys general from across the South say that most methamphetamine labs have been forced overseas. One factor is tough state laws that make cold and allergy remedies
tougher to get.

But they say the highly addictive drug is just as easy to get because it's being smuggled in, largely by illegal immigrants.

The attorneys generals, including Kentucky's Greg Stumbo, gathered in Richmond today for a conference on controlling meth and treating its addicts.

Virginia's attorney general and conference host Bob McDonnell, called meth ... quote ... "the ugliest drug that's come down the pike in 40 years."

Other attendees include the A-Gs from Maryland, Georgia, Texas,
and Florida.
