Find Out If You Live Super Close To A Meth Lab In Illinois
I know you clicked this in hopes to expose your neighbor or bust the person you've had beef with most of the year.
Though I don't have any enemies I'd want to get sweet, sweet revenge on, I definitely would like to know if there has ever been a meth lab operating in the garage right next door to where I sleep. I'm nosy, you're nosy, and your neighbor sneakily peeking out their blinds drinking their morning coffee is also 100% nosy.
We all want to know the exact same thing: Has there ever been a meth lab cookin' close to my house? Well, if you're from Illinois I can tell you it's a hard YES.
There's a super "dope" interactive map you can use to see how far you live from a house that once had a meth lab - aka a clandestine laboratory.
Clandestine laboratories are sites where illegal drugs, particularly methamphetamine (meth, ice) are secretly manufactured using improvised materials and methods. - GWA
After I looked up my apartment in Rockford, Illinois, it turns out I live extremely close to a location that has been used as a clandestine laboratory - approximately 1.66 miles away.
In total across Illinois, there have been 948 clandestine labs. I can't imagine how many of them have been discovered due to cooking "gone wrong".
Weird to think these bizarre things are happening all around us. Makes you really think about who your neighbors really are and what they're doing at any time of day. Maybe that's just me overthinking (lol).
Sadly, Illinois doesn't even have one of the most labs around. Check out the other states on the map and find out how many meth labs they have - it's kinda shocking.
