If the TV show "Breaking Bad" been set in Illinois or another state in the Midwest, Walter White, aka Heisenberg, would have felt right at home

The good news is that no counties in the stateline made this dubious list, the bad news is that you don't have to travel too far to find one that made the list of the counties with the most Meth Lab Seizures according to the latest statics available from the Illinois State Police

Reboot Illinois reports via the DEA that as of 2013, Illinois trailed only Ohio, Missouri, Tennessee and Indiana for meth-related incidents.

According to reboot:

Addicts can find the destructive drug pretty much anywhere in the state, those who manufacture meth in secretive, homemade labs typically are concentrated in more rural areas where there are fewer economic opportunities. Making meth might seem rewarding to some, but it’s also a deadly line of work. Faster and cheaper ways of cooking meth have led to an increase in explosions and burn cases, the victims of which often are uninsured, costing taxpayers billions each year in medical costs.
