Crystal meth has become a state-wide issue in Alabama. Throughout the past few years, Crystal Meth Drug and Alcohol Treatment Centers have failed to provide results to tackle the growing amount of drug use. Crystal meth can be found in various forms from white powder forms to large crystals or commonly known as "rocks." With the amount of Crystal Meth being used in the state, there are hundreds of "meth labs" that are continually being busted. Although these meth labs have been busted in the past, there are still plenty of people selling meth and cultivating it throughout the state.
In 2006 Methamphetamine was identified as the number one drug problem in Alabama for the second year in a row. In year 2002 to year 2004, laboratory seizures in the state increased significantly from 261 seizures in 2002 to 404 in 2004, although that number is on the decline and in 2006 there were only 193 seizures. The lower purity locally produced drug is now being implemented by imported higher quality Crystal Meth, brought in by Mexican criminal organizations and motorcycle gangs. Law enforcement officials report that dealers at the retail level distribute in order to support their own use of the substance. Despite the sky high number of user's state wide, Alabama continues to take children away for this reason at the lowest rate in the United States.
