"With Tennessee restricting sales of medications that can be used to make methamphetamine, records show the number of children taken from parents caught making or using the illegal drug is down drastically, possibly by more than half.
The state Department of Children's Services provided records to The Associated Press showing that meth investigations forced the state to take custody of at least 268 children in 2005.
That's down from a department estimate of 750 children taken from their parents because of meth in 2004." By Bill Poovey, The Associate Press Link to Article (last visited 2-1-06 NVS)
