Question - What are so-called “one pot” methamphetamine labs?
Answer- The cited reference notes ““One-pot” methamphetamine laboratories are portable, often homemade, labs that are stood up to create smaller batches of methamphetamine in a shorter amount of time than traditional methods used by large drug traffickers. The process involves the combination of several common household ingredients in one container and are extremely dangerous. The concentration of the products used builds up pressure within the sealed container to levels beyond which the containers are made to withstand and run a very high risk of exploding into a giant fireball.”
“The ease of transport and concealment of one-pot labs creates a significant concern for officer and public safety. Substances and containers used to create a one-pot lab can be easily overlooked. Therefore, awareness of the precursor chemicals and containers are key to identifying an active lab.” (https://www.dea.gov/press-releases/2019/11/13/western-maryland-battles-opioid-crisis-meth-surging; accessed November 2019)
