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. Yesterday the court ruled that now a defendant charged with manufacturing meth must have all of the ingredients or equipment to be prosecuted.

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.
