Mapped: How Many Meth Incidents Has Your Missouri County Reported This Year?

It's no secret that Missouri has problems with methamphetamine. However, the problems are hardly spread equally across the state.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol has compiled a map showing the number of reported meth incidents in each Missouri county through June 2013. (You can also see what they mean by "incidents," exactly).

With 888, Missouri ranks among the most in the nation, yet again, in meth incidents reported as of June 2013. If the standings stay consistent through December, it could mark the second year in a row Missouri would claim the "top spot" in the United States for meth incidents. However, Indiana is currently "leading" with 956. (For more on meth's impact in the land of the Hoosiers, see Indiana Public Media's coverage of the issue).

In 2010, Tennessee briefly overtook the "title," when that state's meth incident rate increased 41 percent in a year.
