Police said about $30,000 worth of meth was removed from the two labs – one inside the residence and one in an adjoining camper.

The residence was cleaned of all hazardous chemicals and then condemned by Aiken County Code Enforcement.

I have never understood

I have never understood people who just choose to throw their lives away. It is really sad that meth is destroying the white community and crack is destroying the black community.

It's been said that Meth is the White man's version of crack..
meth has taken over some rural white areas.
They are thieves, and giving birth to addicted babies.
They are sellers of it, and are filling the prisons.

Reality

Meth is out there everywhere it is a death wish for the people who use it and a murder weapon for those who sell it. Get it off the streets.
