Drug abuse education course

Many toxic chemicals are used in making meth resulting in environmental contamination.

The production of one pound of meth releases poisonous gas and creates 5-7 pounds of toxic waste.

The toxic waste gets poured down drains or dumped on the ground.

Methamphetamine


Drug abuse education course

One out of every six meth labs is discovered when it explodes or starts on fire.

Because of the hazardous materials used in making meth, it can cost $29,000, or more, to clean up a lab.

Some Minnesota counties spend over $500,000 annually to clean meth labs and meth waste.

Cleanup crews must wear protective clothing and use breathing apparatus.
