According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, in 2014 there were 9,338 meth incidents in the U.S. – that includes laboratories, dumpsites, and seizures of chemicals and glassware. Alarmingly, most meth is illegally manufactured in neighborhoods all over the country using hazardous chemicals (most commonly available) that can cause toxic fumes, fires & explosions. There is no doubt you’ve seen or read about first responders and hazmat crews dealing with these situations. Using data from the DEA, the folks over at Drugabuse.com examined trends and tracked the locations of these labs to come up with some interesting data. They also produced an interactive map where you can enter an address to see what incidents may have happened nearby.
Is that potential investment near a meth lab?
