in Meth Residue Testing Throughout Australia
Property Residue Testing began out of necessity. Australia is facing an ice epidemic and according to the United Nation’s 2014 World Drug Report, our nation currently ranks third in having the highest rates of ice use in the world.
Since 2014 the number of ice (also known as ‘meth’ – an abbreviation for ‘methamphetamine’ and ‘clan’ – an abbreviation for ‘clandestine’) users continue to rise along with the number of meth labs. Almost half of these meth labs are being uncovered in Queensland at a rate of approximately one meth lab per day.
