Operating Meth Lab Charges in Northwest Illinois
Prosecutors in Illinois fight vigorously to shut down meth operations amid strong public outcry against drug manufacturers and distributors. Because meth is usually made secretly in houses, apartments, hotel rooms, cars, and even outdoors, the public health risk is compounded. Even after a meth lab is closed, its chemical residues can linger indefinitely. Those manufacturing and using meth are intent on getting the "rush" from this highly addictive drug, and unaware of the severe health consequences from its long-term use, including loss of reason, facial distortions, and other harmful body changes.
