Shake and Bake or One Pot Meth Making

The newest way to make meth is called the Shake n’ Bake or One-pot method and poses a new danger to communities

New on the scene is the easiest and possibly most dangerous way of making meth. Using the one-pot method means that meth cooks can make meth in one sealed container which is generally flipped upside-down to cause the reaction needed to turn several toxic ingredients into meth. This method generally produces meth in smaller quantity, but doesn’t make it any less dangerous.

The chemical reaction going on inside the container (which can be anything from a Coleman fuel can to a soda bottle) causes an extremely high amount of pressure to build up within the container after being shaken; this method can cause a pretty large explosion. In fact, just the other day, a man died from making meth this way.

The biggest danger in relation to this method is the fact that it is fast and portable. So portable in fact, that it is most common to find people using this method to make meth in their car. They generally drive around while the meth is being made to release the fumes and when the process is over, some 40 minutes later, they simply chuck the used container filled with toxic chemical residue out of the window. Aside from the environmental impact this has, it also poses a hazard to children that naturally want to explore and pick up the things they find.

The remnants of the chemicals that remain in the container are generally muddy brown in color. If you suspect someone of making meth using this method please contact authorities as soon as possible. This type of meth lab is really a mobile ticking time bomb. If you come across a discarded container used in one-pot (shake and bake) meth making do not touch it – contact the police department to discard it, as they will likely need to have a haz-mat team clean up the mess left behind.

    “Grammar”, you’re clearly “AN”, capitalize your letter i as well 😉 if you’re going to correct someone you may want to proof read your own

  • mike t

    some have condemned armyof1 of insanity, unedjukated, bullshitter, unable to make a entelugent comment. maybe, but most likely script that is only consistently different and understood by those who speak thusly. superior rant, army

  • John jay

    Well the u.s. government doesn’t have a problem with making it and selling it in pill forms. If your gonna cook then it’s your absolute responsibility to clean your mess up and in my opinion should not even make a profit from it. Personal use should be a choice as long as you are not violent and you can still be a productive member of society. If your gonna act like idiot then the law will definitely treat you like one.

  • John jay

    I also do not support any of the knowledge it takes to process this drug being explained on how to and what is needed. It’s stupid. Get to the real issues of how we should have the freedom to do what we want to ourselves as long as we are not a walking zombie in public. Same thing with alcohol stay home and drink.

  • John jay

    I know how it goes. I did meth for 26 years. I got wrapped up as I knew I would. Took a long time for me to get caught slippin. 4 years since my last use of it and making it as well. My survival methods was simply to always eat and drink water and be at peace with what I was doing. And most important was stay grounded and be kind and stay productive.

  • Bella Boo

    Hahaha. In Canada ,I would personally call some of you fucktarts or jamtarts. Whether u can figure out . Who I think is on the awesome or reject is however you want to percieve it, eh?!!

  • Bella Boo

    Dude.. you seriously have been through the wringer. I don’t give two shits about these ppl making fun of you. I totally understand what it is you are trying to say. Have seen spiritual warfare and spiritual healing. After thinking I was an Athiest for years. You obviously meant to be helpful. You seem very compassionate heated knowledgeable about this topic from a wider angle lens then most. My brain could see all that you explained while the intelligent person next to me couldn’t follow it if his very own life depended on it. My brain work s much like yours Carl. I would befriend you to swap stories in a heartbeat. I will contact you with this name somehow if i can. Or please contact this post reply with a way to reach you. I do hope you get my reply. I don’t care about how edumacated you are or aren’t. I have some vocational college training. And most of my highschool. I am shy grade 12 math grade 12 social science and grade 12 bio or chemistry science. And profess only to be a good friend. Not more or less anything but a person to talk with. I have only seen a real bunch of meanies here in the posts making fun of you. I am for people having whatever opinion they want. Since we are all entitled to have an opinion. It doesn’t mean I agree with anyone else. Possibly have my own disagreements with you, Right! Even so, we can talk in a room amongst ourselves and be humane. I think you also have more than likely calmed down a tiny bit since this post pissed you off.


    HEY, there is no doubt that ” YOU” my friend are definitely a real fuckin’ idiot and a liar. The recipe for p2p does not use pseudoephedrine this day in time. Ever seen Mexicans buying pills at Wal-Mart ? You, nor anybody you know, have ever grown “ICE” in a cooler either. I guess that’s why they call you “DOPEMAN” You have done too much dope. THAT is the only fact in what you wrote. I am connected beyond you’re delusional mind. Go smoke another foil lay down, and get some sleep, you’ll feel better in the morning.

    Hi there, can we talk,privately please?

  • Caren Welliver

    So I must be commenting on.the wrong post. This would English Grammer 101, correct?

  • Ashley-Marie Eden

    Dear ArmyOf1,
    Bless you brother. I too have some of the background/history you so passionately, beautifully and soberingly describe and so I know first hand that what you are saying here has immeasurable merit and wisdom. Information (as you apropriately pointed out) can take a life or save it, and I agree that dis-information is an abomination and far more dangerous, so those who do not know anything about the subject they’re commenting on (ie: the original author of this blog) should keep silent and simply point the way to a reliable source (such as your good self) and instead of getting an insecure bee in her insecure bonnet and attacking your spelling and grammar simply because you had the balls and the experience to point out what a load of crap this blog started out to be, maybe she should show some humility and thank you for putting at least twenty times more effort into responding to her post than she did originally in posting.
    Thank you for your wisdom and honesty.
    Best Regards,
    Ash. (Australia)

    Hillbilly one word grammar cop

  • your teacher

    grammar is not grammer jajjajajajjjaajaj oh shit

  • teach

    whacked is not wacked

  • Ashley

    LOL. You should not be trying to educate anyone on grammar.

    Among all of your other horrific mistakes, you used the wrong form of “too”. The correct form is the one I used.

    By the way, your corrections for the original sentence are incorrect.

  • Onalise

    My brain. It hurts. Trying to decipher (translate?) the seemingly illiterate, decidedly irate, undoubtedly moronic ramblings of a drug-ravaged brain is almost as painful as reading those helpful (?) posts trying (and not succeeding) to correct him.

    “There should be an I.Q. requirement to breed” is the only thought I take away from any of this.
