In the immortal words of Mr. Mackey, the school guidance counselor from South Park “Drugs are bad, mmmkay.” That said, some drugs are worse than others, and few drugs are as bad as crystal meth. Cheap, prevalent, and easy to cook, crystal meth has destroyed innumerable lives across America, turning people into desperate drug addicts who often make bad, and sometimes hilarious life decisions.
AnnArbor.com reports that a Ypsilanti Township man was arrested earlier this week for setting up a meth lab in the front seat of his Fox-body Mustang convertible. That is just a bad idea no matter what way you cut it.
First off, cooking meth gives off a pungent and obvious smell, and given the numerous and dangerous chemicals involved in creating it, an enclosed space like the front seat of a Mustang is a pretty terrible place to try and cook. Also, setting up a drug lab, on a public street, in full view of anybody passing by? That’s not a bad idea; it’s a cry for help.
The unnamed man was reportedly “cold cooking” the meth inside a soda bottle, and attempted to walk away from the Mustang after police pulled up. But the cops nabbed him and found meth on his person as well. The suspect reportedly lived at the apartment building where the Mustang was parked from time to time, and cops had picked him up for cooking meth before.
If you ask us, setting up a drug lab in a Mustang has got to be a new low. It’s like an episode of Breaking Bad on a budget. Sad, just sad…but at least the cops will have a new Mustang to play with, as they’ll surely confiscate the car for evidence.
