||Residual methamphetamine in decontaminated clandestine drug laboratories
||Mar. 2009, Vol.6, No.3, p.151-156. Illus. 12 ref.
||This cross-sectional study examined three previously decontaminated residential clandestine drug laboratories in Washington State to determine the distribution and magnitude of residual methamphetamine concentrations relative to the state decontamination standard. A total of 159 methamphetamine wipe samples were collected from the three laboratories, focusing on the bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchen. Overall, 59% of random samples and 75% of contact point samples contained methamphetamine in excess of the state decontamination standard. Other findings are discussed. Further research on the efficacy of clandestine drug laboratory decontamination procedures and subsequent verification of methods is needed.
