Well, this is disappointing...."Matches & Meth"

I may be wrong, but one of the chemicals used by meth cooks is red phosphorus. To my understanding, the match heads contained red phosphorus and the cooks would extract it using some form or method and it went into the mix.

I wouldn't be one bit surprised if the government put regulations on companies that make strike anywhere matches to remove that chemical in an attempt to curb the meth problem. 6-7 years back, seems every small meth lab our local law enforcement found had matches with the heads removed.

It's insane what those people use in make shift labs to produce meth. Worse, how can any sane person put a needle in their arm and inject themselves with it? They have also found a use for lithium batteries in the production of meth.

It's a crazy world out there. Just thought I'd throw this in as food for thought. Feel free to Google matches used in meth to see what I am saying.

On a more positive note, I ain't happy a bit about not being able to find decent strike anywhere matches than the next person...sigh.
