It’s no secret- Hernando County has a huge Meth problem. It’s been growing rapidly and giving the county a bad reputation. A quick scan of local news headlines shows how prevalent this problem is. In December, a meth lab was found inside a local retirement community and a patient in the Intensive Care Unit of Bayfront Hospital was seen smoking meth in her hospital bed- while on oxygen. In January, a father and daughter team in Brooksville were arrested for meth-related crimes and the county had more than 10 separate arrests made for possession of methamphetamine.
