Since 2001 over 7,217 children have had to be relocated from parent's homes due to various drug abuse issues. The states Crystal Meth Problem began in 1995 when the state highway patrol noticed a 470 percent increase in the number of seizures at laboratory Methamphetamine production sites. The state has signed into law restrictions on sale of pseudoephedrine, which is a main product in the manufacturing of Meth. Consumers must now ask for cold remedies containing the product at the pharmacy and sign a log in order to monitor the distribution of the drug.
In 2010 officials referred to Missouri as the meth capital of the world, due to the extreme amount of meth labs populating areas such as Arnold County. Meth labs are easily created as many of the ingredients of Crystal Meth are available right in grocery stores. In the past few years the government has cracked down on these over-the-counter methamphetamine products are there are limited amount of quantities available for purchase. This has still not stopped the amount of home grown Crystal Meth in Missouri however. Police officials in Missouri are still trying to contain the large amount created in state. This is often difficult due to the vast amount of rural land and hide ways where the illegal activity takes place.
