The painkiller OxyContin has garnered its share of headlines... But another drug is also causing problems in rural southwest Virginia. The drug is methamphetamine-- a manmade super-stimulant cooked up in illegal laboratories in homes, barns and garages.
Users call it crank, speed, meth, ice or crystal meth-- and authorities say its a substance causing as much trouble as OxyContin. In less than two years, five significant methamphetamine operations have been prosecuted in federal court in Abingdon.
Some of those operations involved multiple lab sites or labs that were moved from one location to another.
