STILL DONT THINK WE HAVE AN "ICE" PROBLEM - CHECK OUT BELOW!

The government guidelines state that:

 

Methylamphetamine synthesis (or “cooking”) operations will contaminate inside surfaces of buildings with residual methylamphetamine. Studies have also established that smoking methylamphetamine will likewise contaminate the inside surfaces of buildings with methylamphetamine. Regardless, the presence of methylamphetamine on inside surfaces at a level of greater than 0.5 micrograms (μg) per 100cm2 is considered unacceptable and not safe for habitation.
