Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

This stop-the-presses story from Monday's Denver Post has the kind of cheery headline and deck you just have to admire: "METH COOKING 101/DEA holds awareness class to show how easy it is to make the drug, which is increasingly imported."

Aside from the fact that homemade meth is the definition of old news (gosh darn! the recipes are on the Internet!), the enthusiasm seems a little…misplaced. It's easy to make, so why are we relying on imports? Do your part and get cooking!

For another take on just how much fun it is to clean up after one of these get-baked sessions, check out our 2003 feature, "Toxic Shock." –Alan Prendergast

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
