Because it is an important ingredient for "cooking" meth, theft of anhydrous ammonia from farmers' tanks and distribution centers has become an epidemic, Ronnie Heitman, general manager of AG Co-op, said Monday.

"They come in and cut chains and locks; they've been very persistent," Mr. Heitman said."They're very resourceful people.If they could focus their resourcefulness elsewhere, they'd be very productive citizens."
The new dye will affect the final product, but not farmers' crops.
"What the dye is is a contaminant," Mr. Heitman said."You put it in there and it colors the anhydrous ammonia and turns it a bright pink.It breaks down in the soil, so there's no adverse effects to the soil, but it turns the (meth) product from a pretty white product to a nasty slimy pink product, and it never dries down."
The pink dye leaves a stains on skin and clothing that are hard to clean off and if users snort the pink drug or inject it in their arms it will discolor their skin for days, Mr. Heitman said.
"If they are snorting it into the nose, their nose will turn fluorescent pink," he said.
...
Adding the dye will cost corn producers about $1 more per acre, but the Co-op decided to use it in all tanks of anhydrous ammonia because it is a public safety issue, Mr. Heitman said.
"We're going to put it in everything," he said.
