For all of those painted clowns who call themselves experts in the drugs and addictions world and who continue to tell us how wonderfully Europe is doing in these regards ("Oh, the Swedes are way ahead of us!" "Oh the Swiss figured this out years ago." and so on...), for all of them, try reading this report about the dramatic climb of meth labs in Europe.
Then try actually walking down the main streets of Frankfurt and Dublin and tell us again how far ahead of us the Europeans are.
It's all spin.
