Top Ten Meth Producing States

Top Ten Meth Producing States

In this article, we will be listing America’s top 10 meth-producing states. We will also be going over the states’ meth-related statistics, Meth production rates, and how these two factors compare to each other. The information gathered for this article is all based on data from the last 10 years.

Before we dive into the top ten meth-producing states, let’s look at the worst meth producing states. Some of the worst meth producing states include South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, and Montana. These states are among the worst due to both the production rates and the high number of meth-related deaths.

Here are the Top Ten Meth Producing States:
1. Kentucky
2. Iowa
3. Missouri
4. Ohio
5. Oklahoma
6. Tennessee
7.. Virginia
8. Wisconsin
9. North Carolina
10. West Virginia

Kentucky

Kentucky is in the lead as America’s top meth-producing state due to its high production rate. The production rate has been steadily rising year after year by almost 10% per year. Kentucky’s meth-related deaths are way higher than other states and have been for the last 10 years. In 2005, which was ten years ago, Kentucky had a total of 257 meth-related deaths. Ten years later in 2015, Kentucky had a total of 754 meth-related deaths. A staggering increase of 260% over the past 10 years.

Iowa

Iowa is in second place as America’s top meth-producing state. Iowa’s meth-related death numbers have been steadily increasing since 2005. This means that they have a lot of meth-related deaths on their hands, and should be looked at closely if we want to see how the situation will continue to develop. Even so, Iowa does look like it may average out to only have about 35-40 meth-related deaths per year, which isn’t too bad compared to other states. Meth distribution in this state has been going on for over a decade, and there are still new meth labs popping up all the time.

The production rates have stayed relatively the same from the year 2005 to the year 2015. They have at most a 10% difference between both years, and mostly about 3-5%.

Ohio

Ohio is in fourth place as America’s top meth-producing state. Ohio has had a steady production rate since 2005, which is much lower compared to other states. Ohio is one of those states where they either produce a lot of meth or not so much, and their death numbers are calculated based on their production rate. Ohio has a total of 631 meth-related deaths in 2010, which was ten years ago. In 2015, Ohio had a total of 1056 meth-related deaths, which is over 30% higher than the meth-related death data from 10 years ago.
