Meth smell is something not easily hidden

Meth labs emit noxious and extremely strong odors that are hard to cover up.

A meth lab can have a strong uncommonly sweet smell; not like a perfume, but something more like a lightly scented cleaning chemical. There is a point int he process where it may smell like a gas leak or rotten eggs. Some of the odors related to a meth lab have been described as smelling like:

Usually living next to or near by a meth lab you would probably smell these things repeatedly. Sometimes meth cooks will cover the windows with tin foil to keep the scent from escaping and others from seeing in. Spotting a meth lab can be tough, but the smell is generally a tell-tale sign.

The ingredients used in making meth are extremely toxic and flammable. If you are concerned about the possibility that there may be a meth lab near you; it’s no joke – Call the fire department or police and have them investigate.

    Honestly, look at what is in meth. Of course, I am sure you know; not to mention what it does to you. People who use meth are known to have Psychosis from using meth, lack of sleep, appetite, & then the inevitable…death. Realistically, most people care about breathing and having sufficient oxygen supply. As meth users don’t have any regard for life itself; as should no one have any reserves for meth users. Go back to your own inner circle of hell in Ashton, ID & rot there.
