    I often wondered, while hiking the PCT in SoCal, how often I came within 10 miles of an underground meth lab. That crap is pure chemical brainrot. I see long time tweakers in Hawaii and many parts of the southwestern U.S. literally paranoid walking zombie junkies from the stuff. Stay away from it!

    Seen a lot of bad things in my life....none as bad as a meth addict. I found a lady almost dead behind a middle school a couple years ago while out on a morning jog.

    I don't KNOW for sure that it was meth... I think she was smoking speed balls (heroin and cocaine mixed) out of a metal socket wrench with some metal scouring pad inside as a catch or screen.

    She was smoking out of that little snuffer until the right side of her lips and mouth were seared together. It was nasty. Paramedics said if I didn't call she would have died there.....still dont know what happened....

    Just stay away from people picking skin off of their face and arms thinking its bugs.....

    This has been around for a few years in other parts of the country.

    Can anyone tell me what this or a functioning meth production smells like.

    Other than pungent.

    Bound to turn up here. Would not enjoy lifting a Coleman can and shaking it to see if it had fuel in it.

    Meth is the poor white trash answer to crack. It is relatively easy to produce, as evidenced by the chemical geniuses who cook it. It is also one of the more harmful substances people abuse. If you look at the before and after photos (usually jail booking photos) of abusers, they age 20 years in about 6 months.

    The labs themselves are hazmat areas and should be avoided at all costs. Inhaling fumes from some of that crap can cause permanent harm and even death if in a confined space.

    Here in central Florida, where meth is quite common, the labs are showing up in the woods all over so I wouldn't doubt that is case in other areas as well. Be careful and if you even suspect that you are near such an operation I would highly advise you to vacate the area with much haste.

    Advil does not contain pseudoephedrine and has nothing to do with the production of meth. Why would you have to wait at the counter for it? Unless it is some Advil cold product that might contain pseudoephedrine...but I don't think any of them do.

    H&M we not only have to wait in line for it but we have got to show a valid state id, and fill out a form with our name and address on it.

    It's probably used in the production process. Do you remember Polar Pur for water treatment, the super-concentrated iodine crystals? You added water and the water would become a water treatment solution from the iodine it leeched from the crystals. A thru-hiker could do the whole AT on two of them.

    Well, at REI, we had to pull the stuff off the shelves and require customers to see a manager to get one bottle max. Why? The heavily concentrated iodine was highly prized by meth cookers for something in the cooking process. You can't even buy it at REI any more.
    If people spent less time being offended and more time actually living, we'd all be a whole lot happier!

    H&M my fault it is the advil cold and sinus medicine not the regular advil. My fault. Maybe that will shed some light on it.

    Smells like strong ammonia (cat pee) and in areas of heavy use look for lots of coffee filters or strips of foil.

    One of our Realtors visited a meth house (not knowing) and after 10 minutes was hospitialized fore 2 weeks. This was during a clean-up period. Sad part was the contractor doing the clean-up was letting his kids run all over. Scary.

    I remember reading (on Whiteblaze I think) that Rocky Mountain Shelter in Southern PA seemed to be frequented by meth addicts or something-- probably because it's so close to the road.

    Any truth to this?
