The 2013 World Drug Report by the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime (UNODC) found that from 2010 to 2011 worldwide seizures of methamphetamine (meth) by authorities rose from 51 tons to 88 tons, an increase of 73%. Sixty one percent (54 tons) of all seizures were reported by the United States and Mexico.
The Report stated that the highest number of meth seizures were in Mexico, where seizures more than doubled, from 13 tons to 31 tons, which is the most in the world, and surpassed for the first time, those of the United States, which seized 23 tons in 2011, up from 15 tons in 2010.
The United States holds the distinction of operating the most meth laboratories worldwide. The numbers jumped dramatically from 2,754 in 2010 to 11,116 in 2011.
Drug abuse is found throughout all industries and occupations. It does not discriminate whether one is a teacher, carpenter, attorney or even a physician. Anyone can fall victim to this disease.
