Heather Grace Hughes, 44, was pulled over in Beverly Hills (Texas, not California) at 1 a.m. on April 25 for a defective license plate light. This is something I see all the time – someone is stopped for a minor traffic/equipment violation and gets arrested on more serious charges.

She told the police that her children were with her mother. Ms. Cole was so intoxicated on meth that she had no idea that one of her children was in the car with her.

I also told the readers that I am not revealing a secret that will cause meth use to suddenly skyrocket. Like I said last week, women and girls tell other women and girls what meth can do. Why do you think that, in contrast to most other drugs, meth is as likely to be used by a woman as a man?.

But when you think about it, they grow up around meth and other drugs, and when their mothers, fathers and other visitors to their homes were high on meth, they probably did not use the best judgment. Her mother may have decided that it was finally time for her little girl to come of age, so to speak, once she reached her teen years.

I was reminded of this a couple of weeks ago when I read about the arrest of Jerrica Schreib at the Everett, Wash., Wal-Mart. On Thursday, March 10, police were called to that Wal- Mart after security officers spotted Ms. Schreib, 19, and Donald Coons, 42, in the sporting goods section of the store.

On the contrary, these same “facts” about meth continue to be disseminated. And the more that I investigated this phenomenon, the more convinced I became that all of this misinformation was being produced and “reported” simply to fit some political agenda.

Regular readers of this column are also aware of another pet peeve of mine, which is the U.S. government’s persistence in pretending that methamphetamine use is not a significant problem in this country.
