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:

  • Lighter fluid
  • Ether
  • Ammonia
  • Auto parts cleaner
  • Rotten eggs

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.

  1. I have known many meth users not anyone i hang out with by friends of friends mostly. I don’t personally care for them because the majority rob, cheat, and sell from family, friends- didn’t matter because they are sick. I have been dope free for 8 months. I noticed several comments suggesting, a ridiculous assumption, that these people want to die. Maybe some, but most just want to feel better, escape from their terrible lives, or possibly feel hopelessly stuck and desperately depressed. I know all too well the belief that junkies don’t matter. I was bad off at times but didn’t steal or take advantage of anyone, it was my own heartache. But I was definitely very sick and needed help but it’s hard to find. Drug users are treated without sympathy, regardless of their circumstance. Many people like myself was prescribed and encouraged to use Roxocodone and every month the dosage was increased until in the end I was prescribed 5, 30mgs. daily. When I was cut off unexpectedly, by receiving in the mail a notice to find another physician to assist me in the future. No reason given, when I called they would say he was busy and to this day I am still baffled by the unprofessional manner of this so I try to discredit the title, and say my old drug dealer Pai. So I just want to say, we should be more humanitarian on the subject. The pharma co. pushed this drugs, the FDA approved fentyal. why? because the effects on society isn’t their concern. But jails are not the answer. It doesn’t help the user get better, more than likely it will get worse. And upon getting out increases the chance of overdosing. We need to realize that empathy and kindness is a better option. Many of the social problems stem from the capitalist who lobby for control, the downfall of true democracy, the people affected most by these issues are not the 1%, it’s the majority of the people, victims of the war coming home ravaged with scars of the injustices of killing in the name of capitalism and the Petro dollar, so eventually they can return home, suffer without help or a way out. The inequalities of wealth bred every form of social injustice, the elected officials doing what lobbyist pay them off to do. We need to revolutionize and stand up and stop these politicians. why do we spend like 3% of taxes on helping those in need and some still have this idea of giving a handout? How much is our military defense fund, billions? why can’t we help the poor and homeless and be a good person. They are not taking your money. The real enemies are the corporations that make production in China or out source somewhere else and have little to with our economy. Under U.S. law, Apple is a “person” and has all the rights of a U.S.A citizen plus every benefit of the rich and over privileged. How can calling citizens from Mexico, an illegal alien. It’s absurd. one day I hope for a mass realization will sweep this nation, so people can see who the real terrorists are, just follow the blood money trail. Also know our countries brutal and barbaric history so we don’t continue to make the same mistakes. We need to see the true nature of the violent atrocities we have imposed on people and their homes. This is happening now, all over the world. The only one’s benefiting from this is very few, not the majority. War is not in our nature inherently, we are breed and conditioned to believe what we are told. We accept lies as truths and over time we forget and carry on. We invaded Iraq, they did not invade us. We destroyed family homes, and terrorized and murdered innocent civilians including women and children and still today we attempt to control there way of life and pillage their resources for our own. So in all seriousness, we are the weapons of terrorist, who do what we are told whether justified or not. Think for yourself and RESIST
