This story is current...it might be interesting to see what happens with it. Food allergies were mentioned as one of the reasons for it, as well as parents who do not want their kids given junk.

Also, this is a shocker, some schools looking at banning homemade goodies due to possible meth contamination. yikes...

Interesting articles. I'll keep them in mind.
2nd article-finally someone takes cross-sontamination seriouslly, maybe we should suppy ourselves with copis and hand them to the in-laws who just can't fathom it. :roll:

Somehow I can't picture the type of Moms who do meth to be the kind of moms who bake cupcakes for school! :lol:

But I guess nowadays, anything is possible...

Honestly, meth is quite a big deal in my city. A friend of mine, told me that her friend is a stay at home mom and tried meth and is now addicted. Apparently, being a meth user drops weight like crazy and thats the allure for lots of women...yes, even moms.

Its like "desperate house wives" and the secrets people have behind closed doors. Even if the moms don't do it, their could be users who are dads, older siblings, other relatives and friends in the house.
