Breaking BadWalter White has some serious competition. Chad Garrison writes in the Riverfront Times:

​Missouri has once again been ranked as the nation’s biggest meth-producing state based on the number of drug labs busted last year.

Missouri outpaced the No. 2 state — Indiana — which had 1,096 meth lab busts in 2009. Jefferson County, Missouri, led the state with 227 labs confiscated last year.

The news comes as Missouri legislature considers a bill that would require pseudoephedrine — the key ingredient for meth — to be sold only as a prescription.
