Dear Editor:

Your series on meth production seems to tell a sad story of how the war on 
drugs causes more problems than drug use. You state "The chemicals and 
fumes that permeate the walls, carpets, plaster, and wood of meth labs, as 
well as the surrounding soil, are known to cause cancer, short-term and 
permanent brain damage, and immune and respiratory system problems". These 
problems are a byproduct of the war on drugs. Legalize drugs and regulate 
them and these problems will disappear.

I do not endorse meth use but if you support the war on drugs you must take 
responsibility for meth labs and the damage they cause.
