For each pound of methamphetamine produced, five to six pounds of hazardous waste are generated, posing immediate and long-term environmental health risks. The chemicals used to make methamphetamine are toxic, and the lab operators routinely dump waste into streams, rivers, fields, backyards and sewage systems, which can in turn contaminate water resources for humans and animals.
Also, the poisonous vapors produced during cooking permeate the halls and carpets of houses and buildings, often making them uninhabitable. Cleaning up these sites requires specialized training and costs an average of $2,000-$4,000 per site in funds that come out of the already-strained budgets of state police, local police, or property owners. Property owners are often held liable for the cost of the cleanup, so if rental landlords find that their tenant has been operating a methamphetamine lab on or in their property, or if landowners find clandestine labs on their property, they could face devastating financial issues.

Crime

Along with the selling of the drug, methamphetamine labs can breed crime, including burglaries, thefts and even murder. Both teenagers and adults addicted to the drug and who have no income to pay for their habit, may steal valuables from their own homes or even their friends' homes.
High on methamphetamine, there's no telling what a person would do if provoked - people have been killed for not owing up to a drug payment or coming through on a transaction. This type of crime requires a great deal of attention from the police, for which a town may not have the funding or the resources to spare.
