Hey, here's a neat idea: Why not open a methamphetamine lab in a quaint suburban house—and disguise the operation as a childcare facility! You could place a cute sign on the front lawn calling it, oh, we don’t know, Kit Kat’s Place, in Morganton, North Carolina. And maybe you would even get away with it, unlike the couple recently busted after drug agents traced a large purchase of pseudoephedrine, a precursor compound used to make meth, to an address that turned out to be Kit Kat’s Place, which advertised itself as as the most caring child-care facility in town. As luck would have it, there were no children in the home when a team of  investigative officers wearing Hazmat suits carted away the alleged meth lab last week. The couple’s own four children were taken to the Burke County Department of Social Services. THe speedy duo is currently awaitng trial in the Burke County Jail.

Last February, my oldest friend died of a heroin overdose at the age of 49. He beat me to recovery, and he beat me to death. He also gave a final, drug-alogue interview on my radio show 20 hours before he died.
