Alberta law taking down the Meth-Amphetamines labs one by one
If you do not know what a Meth Amphetamine lab looks like maybe this may give you a bit of an idea. Picture a beautiful spring morning you walk outside to get a good whiff of fresh spring air and you receive a pungent dose of ammonia instead. You look over the neighbor’s fence and notice and odd heat wave from the garage door. Lying by the road side are empty canisters of drano, javex, ajaxs, broken car batteries and piles of empty over the counter cold medicines.
You question your neighbor’s education and know he is not a certified chemist yet he sometimes does look like a “mad scientist” with charcoal soot around the eyes and an over exaggerated grin of excitement.
Though the above image may be a bit ridiculous it is none the less true and a major cause of death across Canada. Meth labs like the one just outside of Edmonton are a greater danger to surrounding homes and people than we think. All these home-made laboratories are stacked with dangerous and explosive chemicals. If you knew exactly what was put in some of these home made drugs called Meth Amphetamine you would look at this person as a suicidal maniac.
The amount of toxic poison that are use to fabricate Meth Amphetamine would be like drinking rocket fuel. A person who is addicted to Meth Amphetamine has normally tried the other drugs but didn’t get the desired effect, which is to render numb the unwanted feeling, sensation, emotional trauma or whatever it is that this person wants gone.
The drug, Meth Amphetamine will stamp out that unwanted feeling but it also stamps out all other memories and feelings that make you human. Meth Amphetamine turns people into zombies, literally.
It is another success for the Edmonton drug task force and local law enforcement for closing down another dangerous Meth Amphetamine lab. As for the person running the lab, criminal? Yes, dangerous? Yes, guilty of a crime? Maybe the only crime is being a drug addict in need of drug addiction treatment.
Incarcerate by all means but give him some form of drug addiction treatment program also. What good is prison if it doesn’t help beat the addiction? Remember we are rarely born with a joint in our mouth, a straw in our noses or a mug of beer in our crib. Addiction was brought about and now out of control.
If you know of a methamphetamine lab in your neighborhood please call the local authorities and get it dealt with, for your safety and the safety of those around you.
