New York State Police has responded to a growing number of clandestine drug labs.
So far in 2012, the number of responses to these labs has doubled since last year.
That’s why State Troopers need the public’s help in identifying and reporting suspected drug labs.
Drug labs producing methamphetamine are haphazard and involve very dangerous chemicals.
State troopers say that being bale to recognize ingredients – such as ammonia gas, sodium hydroxide, and lithium metal, for example -- can help residents report drug labs and meth production.
