Missouri law enforcement agents were called to 1,200 fewer meth labs last year than in 2005, Gov. Matt Blunt said today.
Blunt is crediting a tough new law he signed in 2005 that restricts access to ingredients used in making meth, such as Sudafed, the over-the-counter cold product.
In 2006, authorities responded to 1,284 meth-lab incidents compared to 2,252 in 2005.
Said Blunt, "Our state's tough anti-meth legislation is making a big difference."
