    I know I shouldn't encourage one-liners but as a meth addict myself, I must say that just cracked me up!

    One question...
    If you cook meth could it be considered dieting or a religious practice of fasting ?
    Just curious..

    I am unaware of any religion that uses meth as its sacrament if that's what you mean. Also if fasting for religious purposes, I would think, the use of a substance to help, rather than your own strength of will, to be 'cheating' in a sense. Wouldn't that be looked down upon by those of and the religion itself? In anycase, the use of a drug and the manufacturing are two different things. To say you cook meth for religious purposes doesn't sound like a viable defense. Unless, like I said, it was a viable and reknowned sacrament of a known religion. Like the Native American churches legal use of Mescaline in religious practices.

    They found no meth, just residue and manufacturing equipment.
    And only $800?
    Surely thats either a tiny batch or someone didnt get paid? either way, it seems unusual.

    Not around here, it doesn't... In a part of SC (maybe more) they weigh all solids within bottle as part of the final count.
