Enrivonmental Impact

The environmental and social effects of meth are significant. Meth labs can cause soil and water contamination, create fires, and kill livestock and vegetation because of the chemicals involved in the cook process. For each pound of meth manufactured, 5-6 pounds of hazardous waste are created. Often meth "cooks" will dump waste into water wells, farmland, and mine shafts, creating public health hazards.
