The occurrence of methamphetamine production in the state has dropped 75 percent since June, government officials said last week, and Trigg County Sheriff Randy Clark has noticed a similar occurrence in the county.

“We have been awful fortunate in Trigg County,” Clark said noting that Trigg County has a significantly less amount of meth activity than other nearby counties.

The plummet of meth production has been attributed to the signage of Senate Bill 63, which went into effect in June and sent ingredients used to make meth behind the counter. Such ingredients include pseudoephedrine medications and lithium batteries.

Lieutenant Governor Steve Pence made the announcement last week, hailing the efforts of the legislature in getting the bill signed into law.
