Cars Would Be Destroyed Under Meth Bill

Standard Speaker

Vehicles in Kentucky which are used to make methamphetamine will be destroyed under a bill approved on Tuesday (Feb. 4) by the House Transportation Committee. The measure is sponsored by the chairman of the panel Hubert Collins.

The Johnson County Democrat says it’s a response to the number of vehicles now being involved in that process.

“When meth is made in vehicles, you can never get ‘em safe anymore for people to occupy. When they’re confiscated, this bill asks for them to be crushed.” –Hubert Collins

Collins says only vehicles where meth was actually produced would be gutted. He says if materials to make the drug were stored in the car or truck but no manufacturing took place, the vehicle could be spared.
