About Meth Labs
Meth Labs (or clandestine drug labs) represent a significant health risk to the community. The making of illegal drugs often involves the use of dangerous chemicals and can produce toxic fumes, chemical contamination and explosions. Exposure to the contaminants can cause shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, headaches, nausea, skin irritation and chemical burns.
