Meth Production

Cooking methamphetamine

(meth), results in the release of ingredient chemicals, the precursor drugs (pseudoephedrine or ephedrine), meth in vapor and particle form and other largely unknown byproducts regardless of the cooking method used. Airborne contaminants are absorbed into soft materials including rugs, furniture, drapes, walls and other surfaces and may also contaminate the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system of the structure. *(2011 KY EEC)

Meth Health Risks

Chemicals may enter

the body by inhalation, ingestion, injection (by a contaminated needle or accidental skin prick) or absorbed by the skin. Both acute (short term) and chronic (long term) health hazards result from the manufacturing of meth. Acute exposure hazards come from direct contact with or inhalation of the meth product or wastes. Burns, tissue irritation and rashes may result from chemical spills and skin contact. Headaches, dizziness, nausea and other health effects may result from inhalation of vapors.* (2011 KY EEC)
