Recovering from Biohazard Contamination from Methamphetamine
What is Meth?
Meth is short for Methamphetamine which is a stimulant drug that affects the central nervous system when it is ingested by smoking, inhaling, injection, or oral consumption. This drug is highly addictive and is illegal when manufactured outside of a legal pharmaceutical laboratory or taken without doctor supervision.
How is Meth Manufactured?
Illegal drugs such as meth are made illegally in hidden laboratories by mixing amphetamine with other chemicals to increase its potency. The additional ingredients are harmful chemicals to ingest such as battery acid, drain cleaner, lantern fuel, and antifreeze. This powerful concoction releases toxic waste and is highly flammable and explosive. Avoid areas where meth is being produced, as the toxins are harmful to breathe, ingest, or come in contact with skin.
