A new federal website brings together lots of resources about methamphetamine: MethResources.gov. Cosponsored by the White House office of National Drug Control Policy, the Department of Justice, and the Department of Health and Human Services, it includes information for law enforcement and public safety; prevention and education; treatment and health; parents and youth; business, retail, farmers, and landlords; and policymakers and legislators.

Meth in Your State lets you find local resources. For example, I found a December 2006 report from the Washington Department of Ecology listing Meth Incidents Responded to by County for Jan.-Nov. I had heard that Pierce County has a lot of meth labs, and now I can see the numbers: out of 390 incidents, 148 were in Pierce County. The next highest county was King, with 63.
