"You can look it up on the internet and actually you'll find more ways to make it than ways to get help for it."

THERE'S MORE TO FIGHTING METHAMPHETAMINE THAN ARRESTING DEALERS AND SHUTTING DOWN LABS.
THAT'S WHY HEALTH CARE AND ADDICTION TREATMENT GROUPS PUT ON A COMMUNITY METH FORUM IN CHARLOTTE TONIGHT.
THE IDEA WAS TO HELP PEOPLE LEARN THE SIGNS OF BOTH USE AND PRODUCTION.
ONE WOMAN EXPLAINED WHAT SHE WENT THROUGH WHEN SHE FOUND OUT HER DAUGHTER WAS USING METH.

"i didn't know what to do because i didn't know what - you can't find anything. it's very difficult to find services. you can look it up on the internet and actually you'll find more ways to make it than ways to get help for it."

A METH LAB EXPLODED IN CHARLOTTE IN MARCH -- SENDING ONE MAN TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN BURN UNIT.
TWO MORE LABS WERE SHUT DOWN IN MAY.
POLICE SUMMED UP THE METH SITUATION IN TWO WORDS -- "IT'S EVERYWHERE".
