If Wal-Mart has supplanted plazas, main streets, and town squares as the communal gathering place in locales across the country, and meth culture has become the predominant culture in some areas, it stands to reason that a logical weekend activity would be cooking up some meth at Wal-Mart. KJRH in Oklahoma reports:
Tulsa Police say a woman tried to make a meth lab inside a south Tulsa Walmart.
According to police, Alisha Halfmoon, 45, began taking items used to make meth off of shelves at the Walmart located at 81st and Lewis in south Tulsa. She then began trying to make the drug while still inside the store.
When officers took the items outside the store, some spilled. One officer suffered a minor burn to his hand. No customers were injured.
