16. And how many for ALCOHOL????
That's the real problem. My guess is THAT figure approaches 90%. Trust me, violent guys with pot in their systems are WAY over the effects of that drug. The most violence anyone under the influence of pot is going to commit is against a bag of Cheetos.

Meth is an epidemic in PARTS of the country, especially flyover country. It's a huge problem in NM, especially in the more rural and exurban areas. It's a bathtub drug and relatively cheap and the high lasts all day. So what if it ages you at light speed, rots your teeth, makes your hair fall out, screws up your skin and drives you batshit crazy?

If you're isolated and financially desperate, it looks like a good tradeoff.
