A state Supreme court ruling could make it harder to stop meth-makers. In the past a defendant could be charged with manufacturing meth if they possessed some but not all of the ingredients.

In dissenting opinion Justice Joseph Lambert said offenders would have to be caught red-handed under the majority interpretation. He called excessively technical. Lambert also predicted that prosecuting meth manufacturing cases will become next to impossible.
