“Twenty years ago in Montana, meth was homemade. It was homegrown."

Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.) sounded a bit too nostalgic Friday for the days when drug users bought his state’s “homegrown” methamphetamine, before the Mexican cartels moved in.

“Twenty years ago in Montana, meth was homemade. It was homegrown. And you had purity levels less than 30%,” Daines told a gathering of his Senate colleagues during a visit to the Mexican border. “Today the meth that is getting into Montana is Mexican cartel.”

He claimed the meth trafficking was due to illegal immigration.
