thankfully the meth problem isn't so bad here anymore whenever clinton was president he came on national tv and talked about white county illinois and declared it the meth capitol of the world but yet again thankfully that
has been put under control
I have a conflict with this. The US meth epidemic is and has been concentrated in the south and west since it's start. Illinois has always had a very low number of abusers, along with most of the northern and eastern states.
I can't find anything on any speech made by President Clinton regarding meth use in Illinois. I can find evidence that throughout the 1990's and into the following decade San Bernardino county, CA was the meth capital of the US. It remained so from 1993 until 2009 when it was overtaken by Cleveland county, OK, which has been the only non CA county in the top 5 US counties for meth abuse for 2 decades.
It goes to show that if such a speech was made, even a president can be wrong.
It's also worth noting that meth is a huge problem in Japan, where it was first synthesized. Declaring a world meth capitol would be hard to do without comparing the stats from Japan and the US first
