‘Nazi’ Meth As Easy To Make As Cookies

From Staff And Wire Reports

A new recipe for methamphetamine is fueling an outbreak of drug labs in Pierce County and Puget Sound drug-enforcement officers are wary the problem will spread.

“It’s so simple, it’s making methamphetamine as easy as making chocolate chip cookies,” said deputy Tom Lind, a member of Pierce County’s Certified Meth Lab Team.

The recipe, faster and purer than other methods, uses ingredients readily available on the shelves of most local drug stores. And it only takes hours - instead of days - to cook.

Deemed the “Nazi” method, it’s believed to be the same mix used by the German army in World War II for “speed” to keep soldiers alert and aggressive.
