      A crackdown on U.S. methamphetamine labs has sparked a proliferation of
      meth production in Mexico, from ranches in Baja California to industrial
      parks in Guadalajara.

      *Mich. Lawmakers Shelve Medical-Marijuana Bill*
      The good news for medical-marijuana advocates in Michigan is that they
      finally got a hearing in the state legislature; the bad news was that
      lawmakers killed the measure, anyway.
