The number of meth labs seized in Oklahoma continues to tumble, down from 422 in 2013 to 177 through Nov. 4.

Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics spokesman Mark Woodward said labs continue to drop dramatically for two reasons — tougher restrictions on buying pseudoephedrine, the main ingredient and large quantities of Mexican-source “crystal meth” or “ice” are filling the void for those who can no longer cook meth due to pseudoephedrine restrictions.

In Oklahoma, customers are limited to buying 60 grams of pseudoephedrine per calendar year without a prescription and meth cooks will hit that threshold very quick, Woodward said
