Coffee pots used to make speed

On the subject of the ABC report I mentioned yesterday; there is an interesting note that the report mentions (that I never even thought about) in regards to staying in budget or economy motels. The following is a quote from a police officer interviewed by Bill Weir of ABC:

“Never make coffee in a cheap hotel room…Because at one time, someone probably used the pot to cook meth.”

Now I don’t get the chance to travel too often but when I do, I REALLY try to stay at some place other than motel6 or the like, because the beds are notoriously crappy; so I never would have thought not to use the coffee pot. I am one of those people that actually like to make coffee with the coffee pot. Maybe I’m the minority, but I thought I should throw it out there in case you are going to be staying in an economy motel. It also makes me sarcastically think – “Oh great, even if I don’t use the coffee pot the tweekers next door could blow the place to smithereens while I’m here? Super!”

This sounds a little too McGyver’ish to me – but I did some homework and have been told that it’s based upon fact. There are some really resourceful people out there I guess. Either way – it’s something to be aware of.

    Shouldn’t we be MORE worried that these coffee pots are, evidently, not being cleaned?!

    The reason I am looking up how to make meth is cuz I was at my sisters apartment and overheard someone talking about white rocks and yellow rocks, about coffee pots and batteries. I need to know if they could have possibly been talking about meth or some other type of drug.

    I am looking this up because I just found out that my sister had meth in her blood again and I didnt know she still had access to it.  I am trying to find out what is used to make it  or at least some of the things so that I can make sure that I don’t have any of those things readily available in my house.

    Back in the my younger years we did things like this.Never meth,but I have cooked tons of ketamine on hotel coffee makers.So I’m sure there is some truth to this.
