Methamphetamine is an extremely addictive, powerful stimulant. It produces wakefulness, hyperactivity and a euphoric effect. Methamphetamine is a class A drug also known as speed, pure, P, crank, meth, crystal, and ice. Methamphetamine has serious social and economic consequences.
Use and manufacture of methamphetamine leaves behind meth residues, which build up over time. Even properties contaminated with meth from use, can cause health problems for people.
To make meth “cooks” combine cold remedies with chemicals such as battery acid, drain cleaner, lantern fuel and antifreeze. This produces even more problems with contamination, above and beyond methamphetamine.
Sadly, rental properties are most at risk. Over 70% of meth labs found by police are in rentals. And because the issue is a hidden one, it is often impossible to tell whether meth has been used heavily or manufactured in a property – testing is the only way to know for sure.
