Presentation:  Clandestine Drug Labs and their Environmental Impact

The number of clandestine labs and drug contaminated properties have reached crisis levels in the United States and around the world. Andrew Yurchuck, Bio-Recovery Instructor and business owner takes you on a dizzying tour of underground clandestine drugs from the lab to the end user. We will watch law enforcement officers create crystal methamphetamine with commonly available products from any home center and pharmacy. You will learn about the dangers of entering drug labs. We will discuss accidental exposures and dosage levels of heroin, Fentanyl, and Carfentanil. The lecture explores how raw materials flow into the United States. We will spend time discussing how to identify a drug property and how to assess the environmental damage. This is a fast-moving segment of the bio-recovery industry. This is one session you don’t want to miss.
