      look here you ignorant mfs this drug was legally prescribed until the late 70s for depressed housewives like you all the only reason i was asleep is because i do not use the drug. I just manufacture it the chemically correct and safe way and sale it faster than i can produce it. I make over $1000 a day when i feel like turning the phone on. The rest of the time i spend quality time with my daughters. Not to mention the money is what provides for my family. Their was never a functioning lab at Motel 6 just a few components. Oh and by the way if you have ever been to the grocery store and left with coffee filters, distilled water, and platex brand gloves or god forbid lithium batteries then u by the letter of the law are guilty of the same charge as i was charged with. If you have two or more components of any kind used to produce meth their is no defense it it is an automatic conviction. if you don't believe me call Randy Nichols office or any defense lawyer.
