As crazy as this is, I actually took time to study up on it. Here ou go:

Urine Extraction Labs
In December of 2005, a 22-year-old man who apparently wanted to get his money’s worth out of his Meth purchase, tried to extract the remnants of the drug from his own urine after smoking it in a California hotel room. The experiment went sour on the man – he spilled some solvent on himself which burst into flames when he stopped for a smoke break. He set his hand, arm and hotel room on fire. He eventually pleaded no contest to Meth manufacturing charges and received a five-month prison sentence.(Information from Billings Gazette and other online news sources)
As bizarre or disgusting as it seems, there are people who try to extract Meth from urine – their own or from other users. These so called ‘pee labs’ are not new; neither are they very effective. The collection process alone takes days to weeks, and because Meth has a half-life of about 12-hours in a person’s body, a person would need to collect urine all day to recapture just a fraction of a dose of what they took earlier.

But some users think the urine-collection method is safer than the common cooking techniques for Meth manufacturing. Law enforcement in South Dakota as well as in other states find jars and bottles of urine in Meth labs and in users’ homes. While urine-labs may sound less harmful (if more nauseating) than other methods, there are specific dangers associated with them for both the users and those who may raid the lab.

The extraction of the drug from urine adds more risks to the others Meth users face. As part of the normal biological pattern, anything ingested (including Meth and other drugs) travels through a person’s system to the liver and on to the kidneys. The kidneys concentrate all the water-soluble materials and waste products in the urine for excretion. When a person collects urine to try to extract Meth from it, he also is saving proteins, salts, minerals, caffeine and bacteria. Some diseases are also concentrated and passed through urine. There is no exact determination of how much of these products are extracted from urine along with Meth – but whatever is passed on will enter the user’s system in a concentrated form the ‘second time around’.

First responders and law enforcement also need to be aware of the hazards posed by urine extraction labs – in addition to the obvious biological ones. The process of extracting Meth from urine involves a step of creating an organic solvent that is flammable and toxic. From that point, the process includes creating a chemical reaction to ‘salt’ out the Meth that can be explosive.

Anyone who notices containers of a yellow liquid in someone’s garage, refrigerator or property should be wary of the biological and chemical hazards, as well as the potential danger of dealing with a tweaker.

Thanks for the post. You never hear about pot smokers doing this..........I guess because pot is not addictive........

You're welcome.
Indeed, pot smokers are way to laid back to do this sort of stuff.

Although, I've heard in the field, men pee on pot to give it weight. Something to think about during the next toke.

Which reminds me...time to bake my wake.
