KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Producing methamphetamine used to be a messy process usually found in rural areas, but a new process that allows the highly-addictive drug to be produced using just a one-liter soda bottle and some household products means that dangerous meth labs are sprouting up everywhere.

Police say that the process, called "shake and bake," is very dangerous for everyone, and people need to be made aware of it. On Wednesday night, police busted two suspects allegedly operating a meth lab out of an abandoned hospital at 19th and Forest near downtown Kansas City.

There have now been 30 busts in just the first three months of 2012, more than the Kansas City Metro Meth Unit saw in all of 2011.
