In the first 8 months of 2013, security agencies in the US State of Ohio recorded 770 crystal meth lab busts in the state. The number of meth lab busts is already the highest ever recorded for a year in Ohio.
Back in 2008, there were 112 meth lab busts recorded across the state. The number of reports have increased each year.
Similarly to Florida, authorities are attributing the rise to the use of easier methods of cooking meth.
