Tough to argue that meth is bad. But city police say there could actually be a really bad batch of the illegal drug on Winnipeg streets right now.
The Winnipeg Police Service say there's been "above-normal occurrences" in the last 24 hours of people being admitted to hospital suffering from adverse reactions to illegal street drugs, in particular methamphetamine or its derivatives.
