Don't any of these dummies ever look at meth mug shots and see what this poison does to you? It's scary to see how desperate people are to escape real life.

It is so sad to constantly read about children being subjected to this kind of environment. A 2 year old child is forced do to the parents actions to be around this and now due to a parents lack of responsiblity to the child they brought into this world that child will go into the system and it is all just so sad and sickening.

I'm pointing at the Ambulance Chasing lawyers and wishy washy Judges to sotp with the plea nonsense and hammer these people. You can't fix it if you don't use the right tools!

"Only charges I see are child abuse and driving under the influence. You wouldnt have 'meth labs' if drugs were legal. Next they will be smoking bath salts to get high....wait......" -- vinylcarwraps23
Methamphetamine is one of the most harmful drugs in general use, especially when the majority of the meth is now made by street chemists who are merely looking for a quick buck and/or are already addicted to the drug.
As for the inane "bath salts" comment, rest assured that item has NOTHING to do with the fragrant stuff you pour into your nice warm bath water. There have been deaths (college kids) in the Raleigh area from the use of those "bath salts."

That is exactly right. The government learned nothing from the Prohibition era. They created a profitable market and the new entrepreneurs are only too happy to provide the products. Even if those folks get any meaningful jail time there will be another six methamphetamine labs built to replace it.

Yep. LOCK UP THESE POS RIGHT NOW. Meth? Childish 2-year-old behavior and ALMOST TRIFLING. EPIC FAIL.
First a YouTube video about bragging about a bank heist in Nebraska and NOW THIS. I am getting tired of getting everything but the kitchen sink thrown at me Wednesdays and Thursdays when I've already had a HECK OF A BAD DAY. Why not double or triple the bail bonds since they decided to do something completely stupid - and crack down HARD on meth and other illegal drugs with stiff bail bonds up to 8 digits. The bail bond for Pelletier is NOT ENOUGH. $5M would suffice. End of story. Once again, childish 2-year-old behavior and ALMOST TRIFLING. EPIC FAIL.
Parents, talk to your children before they do something stupid like this. PLEASE!

Lets shoot for 175 years like the guy in Goldsboro that robbed the dollar stores. Manufacturing meth, which is THE most dangerous drug in the world should at least get you twenty. AND THEY WERE SMOKING IT IN THE PRESENCE OF KIDS!!! That should automatically double it!!! Who knows what type of effects those drugs had on that child. Typical criminals abusing the welfare system. I want my tax dollars back for all the government assistance that they have probably received over their whole lives. Disability, section 8, food stamps...I want it all!!

Chelsea Lou Pelletier, 24, and looks every day of 44. Meth is such a glamorous drug
