Guess how many companies there are just in the state of Indiana whose business includes cleaning up after the police catch criminals making methamphetamine?
‘Meth labs,” as they are commonly called, are multiplying across America, helping fuel an epidemic of illegal drugs.
In Indiana, they’re “everywhere, from a high-dollar house in downtown Indianapolis to . . . rural counties,” according to the head of one of 22 companies in Indiana that are certified to clean up the potentially-deadly mess that’s left behind when police arrest the alleged perpetrators.
The head of this company told a reporter that her company has so far cleaned up 25 meth sites in Indiana in just three months time!
