CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) — The West Virginia Legislature is considering a bill to increase the penalty of making meth in front of children.

House Bill 2083 would increase the penalty for making meth with a minor present to two to 10 years in a state correctional facility with a potential fine of $10,000.

If the minor suffers a serious bodily injury the penalty would rise to between three to 15 years with potential $25,000 fine.

The bill would amend the Methamphetamine Laboratory Eradication Act.
