Missouri might not have retained its distinction of being the nation’s meth capital after all. The state of Tennessee says it broke up 2,082 labs last year, 122 more than were broken up in Missouri.
Missouri officials used figures from the El Paso Intelligence Center last Friday when they announced Missouri had retained its number one position for an eighth straight year. Tennessee says it keeps its own figures.
The Drug Enforcement Administration will release its own figures in about three months.
