Ingredients in Meth

Would you swallow a spoonful of drain cleaner?  Does the thought of injecting brake fluid into your arm appeal to you? Care to top off your dessert with a bit of rat poison?

These are just a few of the common ingredients used in cooking Meth.  One reason behind the explosive growth in Meth labs is the availability of the components.   Even though these toxins are supposedly removed from the drug during processing, shoddy, inexperienced or uncaring Meth cooks may leave traces of one or many of them in their final product. 

When users smoke, inject or drink Meth, this is may be what they are sending to their brain, cardiovascular system and throughout their bodies:

Lab equipment - including tubing, unmarked Mason jars with tubes attached, stained coffee filters, 2-liter pop bottles, blenders, camera batteries, wooden matches, propane cylinders and hot plates - are tip offs to the production of Meth.

Individually, each product is legal and useful.  But when mixed together and processed, the results are deadly - to the producer, user and innocent bystanders.
