Meth More Dangerous Than Marcellus Shale “Fracking” – Can AP be wrong?

AP 23Jan2012, Jim Salter: “A crude new method of making methamphetamine poses a risk even to Americans who never get anywhere near the drug: It is filling hospitals with thousands of uninsured burn patients requiring millions of dollars in advanced treatment – a burden so costly that it’s contributing to the closure of some burn units.”
