Fortunately, I’ve not had a lot of exposure to meth labs. They are a nasty business. There are many dangerous and toxic chemicals associated with the production of methamphetamine. Take a look in the archives here to see what one match can do to an entire house that was the site of a large meth lab.
An unfortunate reality is that children are often exposed to these dangerous chemicals. Sometimes the exposure happens because it is a family member cooking the meth in the child’s home. Other times the exposure can come when the children are playing in an area that has been contaminated by methamphetamine production waste and refuse.
The Georiga Bureau of Investigation produced a guide for law enforcement officers who find children who have been exposed to a meth lab. I have not seen another manual like this anywhere else, so I hope that you will find it useful.
