When you think of Tennessee, what comes to mind? Here are a few things: country music, the Great Smoky Mountains, whiskey, Goo Goo Cluster, Davy Crockett - and methamphetamine. Which one shouldn't be there?
The ravages of the addictive synthetic drug known as methamphetamine or meth have taken a toll on Tennessee's communities, residents, taxpayers and law enforcement.
