THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:

St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells says cleanups of methamphetamine production sites are on track to surpass last year’s figures. Wells says the recent uptick in meth arrests across St. Lawrence County is due to an increase in the drug’s presence, not police finding more of what was already here.

Take the NCNow Survery.

Results will be posted Monday, March 2.
