$6 Million Worth of Methamphetamine Seized in Los Angeles

Tue, 17 Apr 2012 12:51:59 EST

More than 160 pounds of methamphetamine were seized from two homes in Van Nuys and Pomona, CA this week, reports NBC. Authorities said that the drugs have a value of approximately $2 million wholesale, with a street value of $6 million.
 
Chemicals, packaging materials, scales, and other equipment were found at the two homes, where teams spent over 24 hours cleaning up the hazardous materials in the meth labs.
 
During the illegal production of meth, properties will often become contaminated with hazardous chemicals. Common household chemicals used in meth labs include flammable and volatile solvents such as methanol, ether, methylene chloride, and trichloroethane to name a few. Other common chemicals may include muriatic acid, sodium hydroxide, table salt, and ammonia.
 
Carpeting, wallboard, ceiling tile, furniture and fabric can absorb spilled or vaporized chemicals. Outdoor disposal sites may also become contaminated and require extensive cleanup.
 
The chemicals used to 'cook' methamphetamine illegally pose significant health threats to anyone near the meth lab. Short-term exposures to high concentrations of the chemicals can cause lung damage and burns, while long-term exposure to low concentrations can cause cancer and damage to the central nervous system, liver, or kidneys.
 
'Methamphetamine production and use is still a widespread problem in the United States,' states Scott Van Etten, CIH, EMSL Analytical's National Director of Industrial Hygiene. 'EMSL, a DEA licensed laboratory, has received increasing requests to test for methamphetamine, as well as the hazardous contaminants found in and around illegal meth labs.'
 
'EMSL also offers sampling supplies, such as the Meth Wipe Kit, to help home inspection professionals and homeowners test for toxic chemicals.'
