Attorney General Troy King is touting the effectiveness of Alabama's year-old methamphetamine law.
In a statement Thursday, King said the US Drug Enforcement Administration reports a sharp decline in the number of meth labs seized statewide.
He said statistics compiled by DEA from July 2005 to June of this year show a 57 percent reduction in the number of clandestine labs.
The state law went into effect last July and restricts the sale of ephedrine and pseudoephedrine tablets because they are a key ingredient in the manufacture of the illegal drug.
