Illinois Lawmaker Wants Meth Scratch And Sniff Cards To Help Find Makers

(KSDK) - At least one Illinois lawmaker believes a solution to the meth crisis may be right under our noses.

Granite City middle school students are being exposed to the journeys of Lewis and Clark. At home they might be exposed to something possibly more dangerous then the perils faced by the explorers.

So a state lawmaker wants to equip their teachers or daycare workers with a better awareness of the presence of methamphetamines.

"Everybody's probably smelled marijuana or heard it, or smelled it if they were even at a concert. But methamphetamine has a very distinct smell that smells like cat urine." That smell largely comes from the anhydrous ammonia, one of the key components of meth. So Michael McAuliffe has won house approval to provide certain professionals with scratch and sniff cards so they can compare a meth smell with unusual odors they might detect on the clothing, hair, or skin of their students, indicating the child had been exposed to the drug's production or use.

Granite City police busted 32 labs last years.

Janet Vaughn is a school teacher, "Ultimately we're worried about the kids' safety and the kids doing well at school and not having all these problems at home, because it is becoming a problem."

Last year, the three-county area served by the Metropolitan Enforcement Group recorded 115 meth lab incidents leading to 154 arrests. At 17 of those labs, children were present.

Madison County Sheriff Bob Hertz says his county led the state in meth arrests in 2003, "If it's a tool that we can use positively in furtherance of our trying to rid Madison County or this state of methamphetamines, then I'm behind 100 percent."

The Illinois Federation of Teachers is looking at the legislation to determine it's application and any liability that could be involved, should one of their members bring a foul smell to the attention of police.

The legislation is now moving into the state senate. Should it pass and be signed into law, the state police and state board of education would distribute the scratch and sniff cards.

Bad form to bump a 4 year old post for no good reason, especially for just a "bwahahaha". Please don't do it again, it pisses people off.

Oh, and Happy Shroomiversary!
