in Substance Abuse

In the first half of 2011, authorities in Mexico found 103 meth labs, an increase of 25 percent from the previous year.

In 2010, a record 6.2 tons of methamphetamine was found. The discovery of the 103 labs has led to the seizures of almost the same amount in the first 6 months of 2011.
