Governments around the world including the Australian Government agree that for every meth lab that's detected there are another 9 that go undetected. These are slowly poisoning the properties inhabitants. In the year 2015-16 there were 333 clandestine drug labs producing Amphetamine type substances raided by the police throughout Australia. Police acknowledge that this is just the mere tip of the iceberg, that number could well be 3,330. Many manufacturers run their production and move onto a new location, leaving the property they just left coated in the chemical compounds of the cooking process.
The chemicals produced at the cooking stage are toxic and can remain undetected in a home for a significant period of time (maybe years). According to the Governments enHealth Position Statement: Clandestine Drug Laboratories and Public Health Risks, prolonged exposure to these toxic hazardous chemicals have the potential to cause chronic health complications such as respiratory problems, cardiovascular effects including increased heart rate, blood pressure and at a higher or sustained exposure, chest pain hypertension and the risk of stroke to tenants and visitors to those residences. The most horrifying aspect of this is that children are most at risk of exposure primarily due to the likelihood that they will be in contact with floors and walls more than adults.
This is happening all around Australia, not just in Victoria.
