According to the Drug Enforcement Agency in 2010 Indiana ranked 2nd in the number of Meth clandestine lab incidents. Of the 11,239 incidents nationally, Indiana accounted for 1,213 of those incidents. In Northeast Indiana there were 356 incidents. Indiana State Police and the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute state that Meth is costing Hoosier nearly $100 million a year.
Methamphetamine is a very addictive stimulant that is closely related to amphetamine. It is a white, odorless, bitter-tasting powder taken orally or by snorting or injecting, or a rock “crystal” that is heated and smoked. It is long lasting and toxic to dopamine nerve terminals in the central nervous system.
The goal of this dialogue is to bring awareness and better understanding of the drug Meth and the impact it is having in Northeast Indiana and throughout Indiana. Join our dialogue facilitator, ISP Lieutenant Lori Petro, as we explore the drug known as Meth.
Lori Petro, Indiana State Police Lieutenant, is currently the Administrative Manager with the Criminal Investigation Division. She has received extensive training in drug investigation, clandestine lab recognition and cleanup. She is also a graduate of the FBI National Academy-Session 235 and will be our dialogue facilitator.
