Weems Hosts MethWatch Forum

Weems Community Mental Health Center hosted its third annual MethWatch Forum Tuesday in Meridian.

It provides training for law enforcement and builds awareness for the ongoing problem of meth labs and the drugs they produce.

Experts say that dangerous meth labs have seen a resurgence.

"It's just less time consuming and so it's beginning to pick up again," said Maj. Bill Berry of the Albany, Ga., Drug Unit. "We're seeing a little increase in labs being, plus law enforcement and the community's becoming more involved and more aware. And the more aware people are then they tip off law enforcement. And so they're able to find these things."

Officials say meth labs often put children in jeopardy, because their parents are involved in the illegal activity.
